Mason Music Ambassadors

The Mason Music Ambassadors are a group of student leaders who are nominated by our faculty to serve as student liaisons for our prospective and incoming music students. Using their strengths and talents they build relationships with prospective students, helping each of them become contributing members to our Mason Music community.

Our Mason Music Ambassadors have identified their top five strengths using the StrengthsFinder Assessment. 25 out of the 34 strengths are represented among this year’s Ambassadors.
