GRAMMY® Signature Schools 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: the GRAMMY National Signature School. In addition to this prestigious 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 economically underserved schools. The GRAMMY Foundation is supported in part by Best Buy, Campbell's Labels For Education Program, the Ford Motor Company Fund, Gibson Foundation and the Hot Topic Foundation. The GRAMMY Foundation was established in 1989 to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture — from the artistic and technical legends of the past to the still unimagined musical breakthroughs of 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.

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.

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? Pioneer High School Music Department Thank You!
