How does music therapy sounds in Russian? In March 2014, Alisa Apreleva, the founding director of MuzTerapevt.Ru, conducted multiple presentations and in-service sessions in Russian orphanages, nursing homes, hospitals, special education facilities and psychoneurological institutions, to find out how Western music therapy principles could be applied to Russian cultural context and music paradigm. Local volunteers, non-profit organization members, musicians, educators and health professionals not only learned from Alisa, but largely supported and guided this work.
