1. The Loser

By Thomas Bernhard

As Regional Manager for Nordoff Robbins for the North West and North Wales, I’m always excited to see the birth of a new music therapy partnership. As you may (or may not) know, Nordoff Robbins delivers music therapy in two ways. In addition to our dedicated centres and units, we works closely with partner organisations to deliver music therapy in schools, care homes, hospitals and more.  

Oh what a night!

We were honoured to be at the BRIT Awards 2016 as the official charity partner and now you can play your part and help change lives through music by downloading one of the incredible performances. 

For every free download, Google Play Music will donate to us here at Nordoff Robbins. 

Life begins at 40 as they say, and in celebration of this landmark year we have launched a brand new identity and website. We hope you like it.

The next 12 months will bring many exciting things for Nordoff Robbins, not least our first national awareness day (Get Loud) in May. As the ‘music industry’s charity of choice’ we are lucky to receive the support of many talented artists and we look forward to sharing their music with you.

Ed is 25.

Music therapy played a crucial role in his recovery after a terrible accident left him in a coma for 6 months.

We’re proud to announce that three years after his accident, Ed is back at University and helping spread the word of our work as a Nordoff Robbins ambassador.

This month saw the culmination of an 'Introduction to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy' for students from Chetham's School of Music, Manchester. The course was delivered by therapist Brigitte Schwarting, who over 5 sessions guided the 21 students through an overview of how this specialised intervention can help some of the most vulnerable adults and children in society.

Singing a variety of songs, old and new, sacred and secular, the St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir are joined again by their star guestLaura Wright, the nation's sporting soprano and Nordoff Robbinsambassador on Saturday 20 February at 7.30pm.
