During his visit Bruce took part in a music therapy session with children from the Richard Cloudesley School, a special needs school in London, who have been bringing their children to Nordoff Robbins for music therapy for over 20 years.
Bruce said “I’ve always thought that music therapy makes sense because music is a universal language, and it crosses every border, every disability. People just like making a racket and it’s very fulfilling, especially if you can make a good racket with somebody. It’s sharing, it’s communicating but it doesn’t have to be in words.”
Bruce will attend the O2 Silver Clef Lunch later this week, where Iron Maiden will be receiving the O2 Silver Clef Award. Rita Ora, Mark Ronson, Duran Duran, Jake Bugg, James Bay, Kasabian, Gladys Knight, Primal Scream and Il Divo will also be honoured with awards as the charity enters its 40th anniversary of bringing music therapy to vulnerable children and adults across the UK.
