The Mill City Clinic in Minneapolis puts the healing qualities of music to good use. “Every so often we have doctor of musical arts (DMA) students from the U play in our clinic lobby,” said Dr. Jon Hallberg, Medical Director at the Mill City Clinic and husband of Minnehaha Band and Orchestra teacher. “They do this before they receive their degrees, as part of an outreach obligation they have. To date, we’ve had students who play piano, classical guitar, and flute all perform there. We’re likely going to have a violinist or two soon. Both patients and staff love it!”
