Nordoff Robbins music therapy

Every music therapy session at Nordoff Robbins is unique because every person is unique. Our music therapists understand that music evokes different reactions and responses in people. We work with what a person can do rather than focus on what they can’t and tailor our sessions to help individuals reach their potential through music in the context of their lives. We can work with anyone regardless of age or condition.
