With the very sad news of Jean Eisler’s passing, her family has asked that people make donations to the Jean Eisler Bursary Fund in lieu of flowers.
This generous act will mean others have the opportunity to follow their dream of becoming a music therapist, and bring the life-changing power of music to even more people.
Jean was a key figure in the early establishment of Nordoff Robbins and the emergent music therapy profession. She trained on the very first Nordoff Robbins training programme in 1974, when she was coming up for sixty. At a time when most people might be thinking towards retirement, Jean embarked on a second career that was to see her working into her 90s.
Jean was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by Nordoff Robbins only two months ago for her contribution to the charity as a
therapist and teacher, and through her annual bursary programme supporting trainee music therapists.
Any donations will help to continue Jean’s legacy of supporting music therapy.
