Students can also earn CSER through the School of Music by serving in the Marching Band under Dr. Steven Kerr. In addition, music majors should seek leadership positions in music-related SGA clubs or explore unique and customized opportunities for service through special projects (CSER 399-001).

Music majors are uniquely positioned to fulfill a need in local schools by tutoring young people in voice and instruments. Many local schools are listed as Special Projects (CSER 399), which means they can be customized according to the organization’s and student’s needs.
