Get Pitch Perfect with Foreigner and the GRAMMY Foundation

Foreigner and the GRAMMY Foundation have launched a Public Service Announcement campaign in support of music education!

High schools across the U.S. can submit a 15-30 second PSA stressing the importance of music in schools and the great music teachers who have encouraged them along the way. The background music of the PSA should be a Foreigner song of the school's choice, performed in any style by the school choir. Suggested talking points are:

           Who was the music teacher who inspired you?  Why was he/she so inspirational?

           What was the most important lesson about music you learned?

           Why is music education important?

           What are your memories of your first music teacher?

           What would you say to other kids who want to pursue a career in music?

Schools should upload their entry to YouTube and then email the link to [email protected].

The program runs from now through October 31, 2013.

One winner will be chosen by the band and will receive a $10,000 grant for use in their music and audio/visual departments.

The winning PSA will also be post on GRAMMYInTheSchools.com.
