president - Eve-Marie Boileau
Eve-Marie just started her final year here at McGill in the Music Education program. This is her second year on the MEdUSA council and she is very excited to work with all of the amazing people on the council. With piano being her major instrument, she can proudly say that she can now play a variety of instruments thanks to the multiple techniques courses that she took! When she is not in her classes or at stage, she can be found hanging out in the cafeteria probably telling (or repeating) the latest scoops about her life or showing pictures of her cat Mimi. With always a ton of ideas, she will make sure to plan the best Music Ed events for you! Please don’t be shy to come talk to her about YOUR latest life scoops or to share pictures of your cat!
CO-VP Social - NICOLE TEMPAS
Co-VP Social - Heather Worling
Heather is in her fifth (and final!) year of Music Education, majoring on the euphonium. This is her fifth year on the MEdUSA council and she is looking forward to another amazing year! She is really looking forward to her new position and planning awesome parties! When Heather isn't student teaching or in class, she can be found playing video games, reading fantasy books, watching TV shows set in space, or freaking out about the Dragon Age franchise to unsuspecting passers-by. Ask me about my theories on Rey's parentage!
VP Finance - Pei Yao Xu
Pei is in her final year of music education, majoring in piano. This is her second year on the MEdUSA council and she is very excited to spend all of the MEdUSA budget on food and litter for her cat Creampuff! Okay, just kidding but you all know how a pet can get really expensive... When she is not working really hard for her classes (with an acceptable level of procrastination), cultivating a love-hate relationship with her cat, or learning to become a better person in life, she is probably rehearsing for her next dance show (Watch out for the funkiest groove in town). Feel free to say hi whenever you see her in the hallways or the music caf, and don’t forget to show her your new killer moves!
first year representative - Shikara Fahie
Shikara has just started her first year here at McGill in the Music Education program with a concentration in classical saxophone. As this is her first year on council, she is very excited to represent her fellow Music Ed first years. When Shikara is not playing sax, she is either trying to teach herself guitar, baking snickerdoodles, dancing (her name might not be “Shakira”, but her hips never lie!). And if you cannot find her doing any of these things, she’s probably at Timmies getting another coffee. She is more than happy to stop and chat (especially if it’s at a Timmies) and help out in any way she can!
VP Communications - MITCHEL RUSSO
Mitchel is in his third year of the Music Education Program majoring on classical saxophone and doing a minor in Economics. This is his first year on the MEdUSA council and he's super excited to send out some super funny pun filled emails! When he's not attending Senate meetings, or sitting in on subcommittees on equity, student advising or teaching & learning he's in the music library exploring all the Saxophone sheet music! Feel free to email him about any questions you may have, or if you're looking for a hilarious joke or story, he's usually pretty good for one of those!
vp academic - Nicole Furrier
Nicole just started her second year at McGill in the Music Education dual-degree program and is looking forward to her first year on the MEdUSA council! When she’s not busy trying to make it less abundantly obvious she’s a voice major in all her instrumental techniques classes, you can find her tutoring, wandering the third floor of the music library, or trying to convince all of her friends to take Zumba at the fitness center with her. She also occasionally writes executive council bio’s about herself in the third person. Feel free to come to her for any questions about the music education program or scheduling or to just say hi!
VP professional development - Trevor TSUi
Trevor is in his third year of the Concurrent Music Education program at McGill and his second year on MEdUSA. He is an active band clinician and teacher currently based in the Montreal area. As the Vice President of Professional Development, his duties include organizing workshops and professional learning opportunities for the Music Education student body at the Schulich School of Music. Trevor likes to cook, exercise, read biographies and win internet points on Reddit.
Advanced Placement Rep - Aiden Fontaine-O'connell
Aiden is starting an undergrad in Music Education with Advanced Standing at McGill. He previously studied Jazz Trombone, with a minor in Music Technology, also at the Schulich School of Music. He is interested in sound recording and design, as well as IT. As a student employee of McGill’s IT Services, he loves helping his peers and instructors breathe a sign of relief when the sound starts working again! It is his first year on a student council at McGill, and he is looking forward to giving a voice to his fellow Music Ed majors. So, read MEdUSA publications! Come by the events! Got any concerns? Let him know, he'll pass it on. (Yes, there is a chin hidden under his beard...)
