For the past 10 years, their work in Manchester and the surrounding North West area has grown steadily. In 2008, they established their two-year master of Music Therapy course at the Royal Northern College of Music. Every other year since then, up to 15 qualified music therapists graduate from this internationally renowned Masters Programme. Nordoff Robbins currently work in 19 partner organisations – including the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, local special educational needs schools and hospices.
In 2015 Nordoff Robbins delivered 19,226 music therapy sessions, reaching 4,453 people. By 2020, it is their goal to double that number, providing music therapy to more people in more places, including the Greater Manchester and North West area.
