Ms. Medina 

Hello!  I am Ms. Medina, and I teach band at all levels here at John Adams.  I am in my 17th year of full-time teaching , and this is my 4th year here at JA.  I have a Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree from the University of Minnesota (go Gophers!), and a Master of Music degree in jazz composition and arranging from Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY.  I am so proud of how far our JA musicians have come in learning their instruments through the years, and I look forward to even more progress this year!
