Yuffie Hu joined the MacPhail Music Therapy faculty in 2019. Trained in guitar (acoustic and electric), piano, ukulele, and voice, she completed a clinical internship at Children’s Hospital of Minnesota and worked with children with ASD at Fraser. She has also worked in higher education and student leadership.
She believes that music is an extremely malleable modality that can provide significant sensory, neurological, and emotional impact on individuals. With her clinical training and experience, Yuffie is committed to helping children, young adolescents, and adults achieve their musical and/or non-musical goals.
She initiated a project on pronunciation guide on Hmong, Somali, and Spanish, three of the most commonly spoken languages in Minnesota other than English, to help staff and faculty members better serve their patients and clients, and to promote diversity of inclusion. She was also involved with Minnesota Chorale, Voices of Hope, and other community musical performances.
She holds a Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy Degree from the University of Minnesota.
