Legendary Bee Gee, Barry Gibb visit the Nordoff Robbins London Centre last week to observe a music therapy session.

The session was led by two Nordoff Robbins music therapists, for three children with physical and learning disabilities who have been coming to the Nordoff Robbins London Centre for music therapy with their school, The Richard Cloudesley School. The School is one of their longest standing partners and have been sending children here for over 20 years.

Barry Gibb sat in on the session and got to see first hand the effect music therapy can have as they used guitars, tambourines, chimes, singing and the piano. The session was filmed for the One Show on BBC 1 and ITV News.

Barry’s visit came ahead of the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards on Friday 28 June 2013 where Barry received the Sony Mobile Lifetime Achievement Award.

“I first got to know of Nordoff Robbins work in 1993, when the Bee Gees were awarded the Special Achievement Award at the Silver Clefs and it has been amazing to see how the charity has grown and developed and continues to support so many people with music therapy,” said Barry. “I am honoured to be given the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the O2 Silver Clef Awards. Having had music play such an important role in my own life for over 50 years I can truly appreciate the work Nordoff Robbins do, using music to transform other people’s lives.”
