Choosing the Right Class Number
The first time a non-music major takes a private lesson, the correct class to register for will be MUSC 1510 and the section number will depend on the instrument.
FOR EXAMPLE: A NON-MAJOR wanting to take clarinet lessons for the first time would register for MUSC 1510, Section 005. Even if a student is a senior, but has never taken a private music lesson at Clemson, the correct class number would be 1510. The following semester would be MUSC 1520, Section 005, and so on.
For MUSIC MAJORS, the first class to register for would be MUSC 1530, and the following semester would be 1540, etc.
