Watch this fantastic video of a music therapist using the piano to connect with Mary, who has special educational needs.
Nordoff Robins do fantastic work with music therapy, using the power of music to change the lives of vulnerable and isolated people.
And when the results are as fantastic as this, it’s impossible to deny the power of music in everyone’s lives:
From Nordoff Robins’ Facebook page: ‘Music therapy has supported Mary, and many other children like her, to develop key skills such as communication and social interaction.’
‘The impact of music therapy is clear to see and as Mary's teacher Stacey says, “It’s like a lightbulb moment, a little bit of magic. Music therapy is an integral part of our curriculum.”’
