Description

Steve Muise is a music teacher at Mount Blue High School in Farmington, Maine. He talks about his Franco-American heritage, family, and teaching pedagogy throughout the five-minute video. He also talks about the future of Acadian music and how he is preserving the Franco-American culture through his work with the Franklin County Fiddlers, a youth fiddle camp and ensemble emphasizing traditional fiddle music through improvisation. Steve founded the camp as a way to further his passions for traditional Acadian music. He is also part of Boreal Tordu, an Acadian band that also plays Acadian music.

Comments

Maine's Musical Soundscapes is a class about Franco-American music. We learned about the plight of the Franco-Americans and how they lived when they moved to Maine and explored how they tried to preserved their traditions. For a final project, each group was assigned an individual that was highly involved in the Franco-American music scene. This five-minute video is a culmination of our class and research.
