Aksana Kavaliova-Moussi, MTA. I am the only music therapist working in the Kingdom of Bahrain. I was born in Belarus, to a family of musicians. I studied music theory and history at the Vitebsk State College of Music, got my BA in Cultural Studies from the Belarusian State University of Arts and Culture. We then lived in Bahrain with my husband before moving to Canada, where I completed my Honors Bachelor degree in Music Therapy at the University of Windsor, Ontario, in 2008. During my studies I had a pleasure to practice under the supervision of such excellent music therapists as Dr. Petra Kern (Past President of the WFMT) and Dr. Lucanne Magill (Council member of the WFMT). I worked with children with special needs, expectant young mothers, with pediatric patients at the local hospital, as well as with hospice patients in Windsor, Ontario, and Detroit Area, Michigan. I was a student music therapist in “the Music Therapy and Medicine” programme supervised at that time by Dr. Sandra Curtis, which provided music therapy services to oncology and palliative care patients at the Windsor Regional Hospital. The people with whom I worked came from various countries, cultures and religions. This, together with my personal background, helped me to develop multicultural sensitivity which is very important for the modern music therapist.
