The Music Department of Carl Sandburg High School fully embraces the following thoughts of Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser, a nationally known educator, clinician, lecturer, and former high school band director.

Why Take Music?

Music is A Science. Music is Mathematical. Music is a Foreign Language. Music is History. Music is Physical Education. Music is all these things, but most of all, Music is Art!

Why take music? Not because you are expected to major in music in college; Not because you are expected to sing or play your instrument forever; not just so you can relax; not just so you can have fun, BUT to be human to recognize beauty to be more sensitive to be closer to an infinite world beyond this one
