ALISA APRELEVA, PhD, MT-BC, is an award-winning singer and composer, researcher, music therapist, ethnomusicologist, and community educator CURRENTLY affiliated with OXFORD UNIVERSITY

She believes in singing as a natural bridge between people of all cultures, ages and abilities, and the key to our wellbeing - both individually and socially.

Alisa inherited village singing traditions from her kin in rural Eastern Europe, where she spent her early childhood. Bringing the benefits of therapeutic singing to everyone - from before birth and throughout life - has been the focus of her life for the past decade.

Her international advocacy included overseeing interactive music programs for orphanages and nursing homes in the former USSR, supporting oncology patients during chemo treatment, supervising music therapy students at Berklee College of Music (USA), and singing in special education classrooms, psychiatric hospitals, dementia and stoke units, birthing suites, refugee centers and community centers all around the world.

Alisa's pioneering biomedical research on benefits of singing for persons with ALS / MND at The Cambridge Institute for Music Therapy Research (UK) was acknowledged by a personal grant from The Stephen Hawking Foundation.

Every our workshop is unique - because we tailor it to the needs and preferences of each participant. In real time.

We strive to create accessible environments for our fellow singers - in person and online.

A universal way of human communication, singing is a joy we can all share!
