"Playing music and getting to perform it are treasures of life. How wonderful to get the opportunity to be part of an organized program at school to explore this great art form. I am proud to be part of the instrumental music system in Douglas County and very much enjoy watching students achieve their successes in music every year."

"It is our responsibility to educate the "whole" child. Musicality is an important component of intelligence and learning. Without music where would we be?
