Nordoff-Robbins music therapy is an established approach to individual and group therapy, using the inherent potential of music as an effective communicative medium; therapists work with clients through improvised musical activities, aiming to gain and maintain contact in order to establish a dynamic working relationship; both therapist and client are engaged in a series of interactive therapeutic experiences from session to session, with the therapist supporting each stage of the client's creative development; the music itself is regarded as the main agent of change; while the central methodology will be that developed by Nordoff and Robbins, students have the opportunity to learn from, observe and work alongside music therapists from other training backgrounds.
