Jonathan Trout

Musical Therapist

Before getting into music therapy, I was a violinist and conductor. Through this career, I had experienced the enormous enrichment that music provides and the idea of working in music therapy had been bubbling in me for some time. However, it was a conversation in a pub which finally spurred me to do it; I was talking to a violinist who plays in an orchestra I conduct. She is a music therapist and asked if I would like to spend a day with her as an assistant. I did this and it is true to say it was a life changing experience. I came straight home, got on the internet and tracked down a course with Nordoff Robbins.

I graduated with my Master's degree in 2013 and have been working at Bluebell Park ever since. It wasn’t my first time at the home though, as I spent my placement year working here!
