WHAT IS MUSIC THERAPY? – A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO THE NORDOFF ROBBINS APPROACH

This course, presented by experienced music therapists, gives an introduction to the Nordoff Robbins approach to music therapy. It will include information about music therapy and the Nordoff Robbins approach and examples of music therapy in action. The course is open to anyone interested in music therapy, catering for people with no previous knowledge and also for those with experience in related fields. 

We are delighted that Ava West, has joined forces with Nordoff Robbins as she launches her debut exhibition.

The exhibition, entitled Life Through Art, is a visceral exploration of West’s life experiences as she combines media with emotion to convey themes such as imperfection, judgment, instability, confusion, uniqueness, creativity and peace.

It's running at Gallery Different from 22 – 25 November.  All proceeds will be donated to Nordoff Robbins' work.

Over 25 people in Bournemouth’s refugee community are taking part in Nordoff Robbins music therapy sessions, in a six month pilot project using music to break down barriers and helping them find their voice. The pilot is the result of a new partnership between Nordoff Robbins and ICN.
