Should this be considered volunteering on my app?

I have been volunteering with my local church for many years as a musician. At one point I did have a leadership position as the music director which was paid, but otherwise it has been strictly volunteer for over 10 years.

Is this something I can list as volunteering? I know it isn’t “essential” like volunteering at a clinic or hospital, but does that matter if you are serving your community in some way?

I think you can list it if you are able to discuss how you served your community. Leadership is one quality adcoms look for, so discussing that aspect could help your application
