Richard Sanderson has worked as a music therapist with people with dementia since 2005.

Historically, Nordoff Robbins has hosted seminars and open days with a series of internal speakers and sometimes guest speakers. Find out more about our most recent seminars below. 

In addition to organising a range of conferences and seminars, the Nordoff Robbins research team offers a number of research and evaluation workshops across the country.

These workshops cover a range of topics (e.g. how to evaluate services, how to use data analysis software) and are addressed to a wide range of arts therapies and arts & health professionals and students. Due to their practical nature, workshops are open to a limited number of attendees each time.

I was in the sandwich aisle at Tesco Express. I had a ten-minute window before the start of my night shift and was probably choosing carefully between egg & cress or duck hoisin wrap, when my mobile rang. It was Doctor Procter, from Nordoff Robbins. “You’re in,” he said (or something along those lines). An attempt to sound calm and collected as I thanked him graciously for letting me know, and I hung up with a trembling thumb. Beaming wildly at a tired-looking cashier, I paid for my sandwich* and bounced off to work.
