The Nordoff-Robbins approach to music therapy developed from the pioneering work of Paul Nordoff and Clive Robbins in the 1950/60s. It is grounded in the belief that everyone can respond to music,no matter how ill or disabled. The unique qualities of music as therapy can enhance communication, support change, and enable people to live more resourcefully and creatively. There are several Nordoff-Robbins centres worldwide.
Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy is a registered UK charity that receives no statutory funding. The charity runs the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Centre in London and a number of music therapy outreach projects nationwide. It also runs postgraduate training courses in music therapy and a research programme with regular public courses and conferences.
