Today, 19 October 2018, Nordoff Robbins students, staff and family celebrated as ten students from of our Master of Music Therapy programme and one student from our PhD programme graduated at a ceremony hosted in the Nordoff Robbins London Centre.

I finished my training at NR London in July 2008 and returned to Lyon in France to be with my family again. Through the international department of St. Christopher’s Hospice in South London I was lucky enough to find the name of a doctor who directs a palliative care unit in Lyon, and who was looking for a NR trained music therapist. On my first meeting with her she offered me a half day a week for music therapy in her service, which quickly increased to two half days a week.


Our legendary Nordoff Robbins Pop Quiz, sponsored by Integro Insurance Brokers Ltd, returns for its 29th year in November, this time with a fresh 90's-tastic feel and hosted by BBC Radio 1 The Official Chart host, Clara Amfo.
