Music Therapy Room

The music therapy room is an innovative rehabilitation and educational program of the Foundation. It is applicable in the system of complex correction and rehabilitation of children with disabilities.

The program is implemented in children's rehabilitation institutions and is aimed at children left without parental care, who have sensory disintegration, mental disorders, and in some cases severe multiple developmental disorders.

The goal of the program is to optimize the process of medical and psychological rehabilitation of the wards. In addition, children receive a unique emotional experience, the opportunity to express themselves and be understood by others.

Our facilities are located in Centers for Promoting Family Education, as well as rehabilitation centers for children with special needs in 3 regions of Russia: Moscow, St. Petersburg and the Kaliningrad Region (Kaliningrad, Zelenogradsk).


The program is applicable to a wide range of physiological and psychological characteristics of children. That is why our classes are unconventional, and the choice of the format for conducting them entirely depends on the capabilities of the children. We conduct individual and group classes; initiating energetic jams or quiet meditations.

The choice of instrument is a very important aspect in music therapy. We use instruments from different eras and cultures. Depending on the diagnosis, we offer children the tools that are most effective in their case.

We regularly hold concerts with guest musicians and animators. Children get acquainted with different musical trends and instruments, take part in fun holidays, listen to classical and ethnic music.

Every child is unique. For a successful rehabilitation process with the help of music therapy, it is important to find the right approach, "tune in to the wave" of the child. Our music therapists have not only rich experience in psychology and pedagogy, but also spiritual qualities that allow them to reach out to children with the most complex diagnoses.


An important task of the fund is to introduce an innovative rehabilitation program into the system of correctional institutions. To this end, events are regularly organized for heads and employees of correctional institutions in different regions. These are seminars, festivals, round tables in online and face-to-face formats.

In the summer of 2021, the foundation held a major event with the involvement of international speakers - the first international festival "The Healing Power of Love and Music". The full version of the video is here.

Seminars are regularly organized for managers and employees of correctional institutions, where the prospects for using music therapy in the rehabilitation and correctional processes of children with disabilities are discussed.
