Last year we were pleased to announce that Pauline Etkin would take on the role of Honourary President of NR International. In this role Pauline has been invaluable, helping as we try to take and support the Nordoff Robbins name further than ever before.

Having achieved so much, Pauline has decided to hand over her in-depth and hands-on work co-ordinating NR International and take a less active role. But, as she steps down from this role, we’re so pleased that she has agreed to become President Emeritus of NR International.

Pauline is an accomplished music therapist in her own right and, having served as the CEO of Nordoff Robbins for over 20 years, her work has helped transformed the lives of thousands of people. In recognition of this, Pauline was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to music therapy, and received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Association for Music Therapy.

About her appointment, Pauline said “it is a great honour to accept this, particularly, as the last President Emeritus was Clive Robbins so I feel that I have a wonderful role model.”

We’re so pleased to keep Pauline in the Nordoff Robbins family and continue to benefit from her knowledge, experience and passion.
