Shylie Miller is a Board-Certified Music Therapist from Dallas, TX. From a young age, she was exposed to voice and a variety of instruments through participating in band, choir, and private lessons. Shylie’s combined passions for music and helping others are what drew her to a career in Music Therapy. She attended Drury University in Springfield, MO, where she graduated in December 2019, Summa Cum Laude, with a Bachelor of Music Therapy degree.
Shylie has worked as a music therapist with a variety of populations, including Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities, Pediatric Medical, NICU, Memory Care, and Hospice. She completed a 6-month clinical internship at the University of Missouri Women’s and Children’s Hospital in November of 2019, where she provided music therapy to patients on the general pediatrics floor, in the pediatric ICU, and in the NICU. Shylie has also completed the Sprouting Melodies training, which focuses on a developmental music program for infants, toddlers, and early school-age children to attend with their parent(s).
While Shylie’s biggest passion is Music Therapy, she really enjoys performing, particularly classical voice. Shylie performed regularly throughout college, often as the featured soprano soloist in Drury choral concerts. She also had the opportunity to perform with the Springfield Regional Opera and the Springfield Symphony several times throughout her college career. Shylie hopes to continue her vocal journey through continued voice lessons and local ensembles/solo gigs.
Shylie is so excited to begin teaching and providing music therapy at PCSM and LCFA. She is looking forward to meeting her students and clients!
