Louise Gregg – Manchester MMT Graduate 2017

The centrality of music and people within the Nordoff Robbins approach is what made the MMT the right choice for me. The course was practical, thorough, robust, challenging and fulfilling at every turn, with music as the constant central point. Having placements from the outset was so beneficial, as we could put everything we learned into real life contexts. Similarly, the weekly supervisions were excellent for coaching on specific moments from placement. Learning with and from the rest of the cohort was such a privilege, and valuable beyond words.

In addition to all of that, the greatest strength of the programme is the tutors; they are highly skilled, and so insightful and committed to figuring out each student, to draw out their strengths. I have gone on a long process and grown so much over the two years, and I wouldn’t have been able to do that without the tutors on the course. At the end of the program I felt fully equipped to apply for the graduate employment scheme with Nordoff Robbins, and am now excited to be working four days a week as part of the Nordoff Robbins family.

Oliver Kluczewski – London MMT Graduate 2015

I took a professional side step and left the world of arts venues and music festivals to train as a music therapist. I wanted to work with people directly through music, and was attracted to the Nordoff Robbins approach – celebrating a person’s potential, regardless of the challenges they may face. The training course lets you take musical leaps of the imagination, and experience music making like you never have before. You are on placement from the first week, working alongside professional music therapists, and musical immersion runs right through the training.

There is such a high standard of delivery and care for the work at Nordoff Robbins, and the tutors really want the best for you. One of the great things about the training, work and culture of music therapy is a sense of constant wonder and exploration. We are always learning and always developing our craft with the singular aim of being the best we can for the people we represent. I applied for the Graduate Scheme towards the end of my training, and I now work full time as a music therapist in a variety of settings.
