Our third intern spotlight is none other than Ms. Emily Keith! She is our only graduate student this year in internship. She received her BA in Music and psychology minor from Western Kentucky University. She is working to complete her Master of Music with a music therapy emphasis at Illinois State University. One of the best music experiences she's had was during a jam session. It was when Emily and another music therapy friend did slide whistle cover of "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off."
Outside of music, Emily is a lifelong girl scout and during her summer job at the Kentucky Governor's Scholars Program, she had a club dedicated to her dog. People could stop by to hang out with him and at the end of the program, Emily distributed coloring pages that looked like her furry friend. During her internship, she is most excited to see how different MT-BCs bring their musicality and therapeutic approach into the field. From that, Emily wants to learn how to take these styles and better shape her identity as a future music therapist. Welcome, Emily!
