My son began music therapy two years ago, when he was four, and it's had huge benefits. It's made all his other therapies more effective while providing him with something beneficial that doesn't feel like work.

Music therapy has been very beneficial for Hudson. It has enhanced his listening skills and his ability to coordinate his movement in time with music all whilst having fun.
Dana - Mother
Music Therapy has been wonderful for April. She is singing with more confidence and with more articulation, making her speech clearer and easier to understand. She is enjoying all aspects of her sessions, becoming increasingly less anxious. She particularly enjoys using the microphone.

I felt so lucky to be able to join Nordoff-Robbins as a volunteer! The people who work here inspire me. The clients amaze me. It is an environment filled with therapists and staff who are incredible at what they do and achieve and they were always so generous with their time and knowledge and to help me as a volunteer.

My Autistic child enjoys music therapy so much. While she's having fun, she's also learning vital skills like turn taking, waiting, following instructions and communication beyond the purely verbal. Music is her first love so it's great that she has a place like Nordoff Robbins to share that passion.

Music Therapy plays a big part in my daughter's life. Ingrid's speech has greatly improved, she is singing along with the therapist, she follows instructions very well and she is able to play 3 different musical instruments at the same time. The Therapists at Nordoff-Robbins should be commended for their dedication and commitment! Thank you for your hard work and for believing in Ingrid. The best part is......the smile on Ingrid's face every time she walks in the Centre.
