Idalia Medina
Bachelor of Music Instrumental with an *Education Minor.
Majored on French Horn and played with the symphonic band.

"I will forever be grateful for my educational and musical experiences that I had at Temple College and Texas A&M-Central Texas. The professors are phenomenal teachers and great people. I still talk to my professors when I have the opportunity. They pushed me as a musician and as a young teacher, and they helped in the development of who I am today. The culture of the music program at Texas A&M-Central Texas is centered around the students, high expectations, discipline, and achievement. The small school environment is also a huge plus, because it allows for smaller, more personal classes. To any student in high school that wants to pursue music, please consider Temple College and Texas A&M-Central Texas. You will not have a significant amount of student loans to worry about once you graduate, and your experience will be AMAZING!"
*Idalia Medina was the first student in the Music Program to graduate with an Education Minor.

"I could not have asked to be a part of a more robust and incisive program than what was offered here at TAMUCT. The directors and professors here offer incredible insights and display nothing but thoughtfulness towards the students while simultaneously expecting greatness from each and every one of us. Though the work can be challenging at times, the reward of it all is worth tenfold the effort that you put in. This program will provoke you into choosing the work that will transform you into a musician of the highest caliber, whether that be as an educator or as a performer. I would not be the person I am today without the influence and the aid of each of these educators."
