Every semester, roughly 1,200 students come to the Couch building to take Music courses or participate in performance ensembles. Approximately 30 graduate students are in and out of the building every day working on projects and classwork. You don’t have to look far to find students hard at work on their studies, playing in an ensemble, or just practicing an instrument in their free time -- at any time of day.
The School of Music also serves as home for a variety of student organizations, all of which serve special purposes. Whether you’re looking to provide service, get more involved with an ensemble, or simply make new friends, there’s a place for you in one of the following organizations:
