The Music Department at BYU is too understaffed for the demand. I am going to talk about the focus that is placed on music in the LDS society, and compare our school with others with established music programs; the number of students in the programs and the staff. I will find out the numbers of students and staff in other university and in ours, discuss the power and effects of music. I will also address the possible counter-arguments of budget, the school’s focus on math/science/business, and the comparative unimportance of music.
