Every Wednesday morning, I get to play music for and sing to babies. How awesome is that?! My future career as a music therapist is going to be challenging and joyful, and I’m so very excited. At UE, music therapy students are fortunate to get at least six semesters of practicum experience. We learn by doing, being assigned a site in the community to observe and provide music therapy while being guided and supervised. My final practicum before graduation is in the St. Mary’s Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It has been a great experience learning the many aspects of using music therapy in the NICU and working with babies and their families.
