Music with Ms. Adcock

Welcome to my page! 


My name is Ms Adcock and I am the instrumental music teacher here at Manual Arts High School. I teach a variety of instruments and classes, including keyboard/piano, percussion, modern band, and advanced band. 


I am very passionate about music and music education, and think all students should have access to high quality performing arts education while they are in high school. I hope to instill a sense of inquiry, creativity, leadership, and hard work in my students through music education and performance. 


I started at Manual Arts High School as the drum-line coach in 2015, and also worked for the Woodcraft Rangers After School Program at Manual, supporting the Percussion Ensemble, Drum-line and Advanced Band/Marching Band from 2017-2022. In 2022 I was hired as the full time certificated instrumental music teacher, and am very proud to be an official toiler! 


I earned my Associates of Arts Degree in Drum Set Performance from Musicians Institute in 2012, my Bachelors of Music in Popular Music Performance (drum set) from the University of Southern California (USC) in 2017, and am currently working on my Masters of Music Education at the University of Florida. I did National University's single subject credential program, and also attended Los Angeles Valley College from 2012-2014. 


Students: If you are interested in participating in the drum-line, modern band, or marching band, please come visit me in Room 4!
