My name is Melinda Mason and I am thrilled to be able to call myself a Thornton High School Trojan!
This will be my 6th year teaching Instrumental Music and my first year teaching it at THS. My music classes here at Thornton include Band, Orchestra, and Guitar.
I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and recieved my Music Education degree from Kennesaw State University. In 2019, I moved to Boulder, Colorado to pursue my Master of Music degree in Wind Band Conducting from the University of Colorado, Boulder and graduated in May of 2021.
I play many instruments including trumpet, trombone, saxophone, clarinet, guitar, ukulele, but my main instrument is tuba!
My goal as a teacher is to have all of my students spread kindness, show leadership, and feel welcome into a community through the acts of learning music together.
