Dr. Adkins received his DMA in orchestral conducting, his MM in composition and his BS in music education.

Dr. Adkins believes that music is one of the core expressions of our humanity. He goes on to say, "Teaching classical music is a task that is always relevant. Students are learning about an aspect of their cultural heritage which deepens and enhances their lives. Armed with the knowledge of the details of the musical experience, students are able to find the expressive qualities that make the experience of music both personal and rewarding."

Dr. Adkins teaches Music Appreciation, Applied Music and conducts the Cabrillo College Orchestra.
