 The GRAMMY Foundation® Signature Schools program recognized
the top 36 public schools across the country for outstanding commitment
               to their music education programs in 2011.
     Determined by a blue-ribbon panel of top music educators and
 professionals, schools are awarded grants for their music departments.
This year, Pioneer High School finished as the top school in the country:

 award, the GRAMMY Foundation presents a $15,000 grant to the Ann
            Arbor Pioneer High School Department of Music.
   Grants were awarded to 36 top U.S. Public High Schools for music
    excellence, and 27 Enterprise Awards were granted this year to

future generations of music professionals. The Foundation accomplishes
    this mission through programs and activities that engage the music
    industry and cultural community as well as the general public. The
     Foundation works in partnership year-round with The Recording
   Academy® to bring national attention to important issues such as the
     value and impact of music and arts education and the urgency of
 preserving our rich cultural heritage. For more information, please visit

           All AAPS students receive a
        comprehensive K-12 music education
The citizens of Ann Arbor have long recognized music education as a priceless
component of a complete and well-rounded education. Music was the first subject to
have state and national learning standards based on a comprehensive K-12 education.
Music Education is recognized by the State of Michigan as an integral part of the
content standards and benchmarks of curriculum, with rigorous expectations of what all
Michigan students should know and be able to do in dance, music, theatre and the visual
arts at the elementary, middle and high school levels. Music is an invaluable part of
education for its intrinsic and extrinsic rewards, improved test scores, the ability to
learn, read and perform, and using tactile, auditory, and visual learning concurrently.
The Ann Arbor Public School K-12 Music Education Program and Music Faculty have
led the way in the state‘s comprehensive music education standards since the earliest
part of the 20th century. AAPS students routinely lead the state in standardized test
scores at every age level. As research has continually shown, music program quality
and test scores are closely linked. A 2008 University of Kansas study is one of multiple
recent research studies which continually confirm that K-12 students participating in
good music programs score higher on standardized tests than students who participate in
weaker programs or no programs at all, affirming Ann Arbor‘s music education
curriculum is best for student achievement.
Ann Arbor students routinely attain high academic, athletic and artistic achievements.
Graduates of the Ann Arbor Public Schools comprehensive music education program go
on to great success in every endeavor. Pioneer graduate David Westin‘70, who played
in the Pioneer Symphony Band and Orchestra and performed during Pioneer‘s first
appearance at the Midwest Clinic in Chicago in 1969, was president of ABC News 1997
-2010, and Director, the Associated Press; the Newseum; City University of New York
School of Journalism Advisory Board; Riverdale Country School; and Yonkers Partners
in Education.

―Being part of the Ann Arbor Pioneer Symphony Band for three years taught me the
importance of discipline, the value of teamwork, and – most important – what it means
to strive for excellence. I will always owe a debt to Victor Bordo, our conductor, and to
all of those with whom I played.‖
                                          — David Westin, former President, ABC News

      Music Education requires community support.
                  ADVOCATE for the arts.
         MAINTAIN our traditions of excellence.
  The success of future generations is depending on YOU!

    Why We Study Music in Ann Arbor
Music is Science:
 It is exact, specific, and demands exact acoustics. A musical score is a graph
 which indicates frequencies, intensities, volume changes, melody, and
 harmony all at once and with the most exact control of time.
Music is Mathematics:
 Rhythmically, music is based on divisions of time into precise fractions which
 must be done instantaneously, not worked out on paper.
Music is Foreign Language:
 Most music terms are in Italian, German or French. Music notation is a highly
 developed shorthand that uses symbols to represent ideas. Music itself is the
 most complete and universal language.
Music is History:
 Music reflects the environment and time of its creation, including its cultural,
 national and racial origins.
Music is Physical Education:
 Music requires fantastic coordination of fingers, hands, arms, lip, cheek, and
 facial muscles, and extraordinary control of the back, stomach, and chest
 muscles, which each must respond instantly to what the eye sees, the ear hears
 and the mind interprets.
Music Develops Insight and Demands Research:
 Organized, independent thought is required.
Music is all of these things, but most of all, Music Is Art.
 Music allows a human being to take all these technical terms, facts, and
 techniques and use them to create emotion —the one thing science cannot
 duplicate: humanism, feeling, and emotion.
Music should be studied
  Not so you can play or sing all your life,
  Not so you can relax,
  Not so you can have fun,
 but . . .
  So you will be human,
  So you will recognize beauty,
  So you will be sensitive,
  So you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world,
  So you will have something to cling to,
  So you will have love, compassion, gentleness, life.
      For of what value will it be to make a prosperous living unless
      you know how to live?
