Melissa Mercadal-Brotons, the recently elected President of the World Federation of Music Therapy , visited Moscow, where she gave a public lecture on music therapy at Russian Music Academy named after Gnessin. The lecture was attended by students, professional musicians, and specialists practicing therapeutic applications of music in Russia, including music therapists, psychologists, special education teachers.
Melissa Mercadal-Brotons shared very special words of inspiration with our community:
“Gràcies a l’Acadèmia de Música Gnessin de Moscú per convidar-me a parlar de la Musicoteràpia i de les seves aplicacions. Ha estat un plaer presentar i compartir les possibilitats d’aquesta meravellosa disciplina i contribuir així al seu desenvolupament arreu del món. No tinc cap dubte que tots els esforços dels musicoterapeutes russos per introduir-la al seu país es veuran recompensats”.
“Thanks to the Gnessin Academy of Music in Moscow to invite me to talk about Music Therapy and its applications. It has been a pleasure to present and share the possibilities of this wonderful discipline and thus to contribute to its development around the world. I have no doubt that all the efforts of Russian music therapists to introduce it in their country will have their rewards”.
