Music Therapy Conversations

Jan 19, 2022

Davina Vencatasamy spoke to Sandra Schembri, the CEO of Nordoff Robbins, UK, continuing her sequence of interviews exploring diversity, race and representation in music therapy. Sandra describes herself as follows:

"Over the course of my 26+ year career so far I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing organisations including Bloomberg, The Royal Academy of Arts, Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and The House of St Barnabas, supporting further social change in the areas of music, culture, homelessness and employment. I am a "People 1st" leader and believe very deeply that "culture eats strategy for breakfast". I currently have the privilege of leading Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy UK where my music studies are being put to good use (singer, cello, clarinet). I am a proud mother of a 6-year-old force of nature and big on family, dogs, sci-fi, trees and food. There is nothing that cannot start to be solved with the help of a cup of tea with a biscuit."
