President - Chantelle Edwards
I’m in my 4th year of music ed., majoring in Clarinet with a minor in Sociology. This is my second year on MEDUSA, and I am committed to making it as successful as we were in our inaugural year. As president, I hope to increase our visibility in the Montreal music education community by serving on various associations. I would also like to increase community connections and expand on last year's theme of "Music Education for Social Change". In my spare time, I like to play Scrabble, drink coffee and organize other people's schedules!

If you need anything, don't be afraid to ask. Allison's here for the people.
