Manie in the news
Manie Musicale dans les infos de la Réunion!
Maine Department of Education, January 26, 2021
This is the best collaborative project I've seen in all of my years as an educator. (Jessica Blue, Mounds Park Academy, Maplewood, Minnesota.)
Teacher & student feedback
The amazing diversity of the artists in this year’s bracket has not gone unnoticed. One of my students, who is of Cameroonian descent, commented out loud today, ”What is this?! Almost all of these artists are black and look like me!”. He is one of maybe 2-3 black kids in my small high school, and he is both thrilled and surprised to have so much diversity represented in the playlist. It makes a difference. (Madame Fitzgerald, South Shore of Massachusetts, 2023)
My students (in the Berkshires, Massachusetts) look forward to the Manie every year. This year they are excited for artists like Maître Gims and Stephane Legar to reappear. It is a breath of fresh air - un bol d’air frais! We love it! (Madame Dupuis, Lenox Memorial Middle and High School, Lenox, MA, février 2021)
From Aidan G. at Falmouth Middle School, after Madame Fournier complimented him on his score on a Lyrics Training assignment: I only got the score that I did because ever since last year when I heard one of Vitaa et Slimane other songs with the Manie Musicale (Ça va ça vient) I have been listening to other songs that they wrote and I heard this song (ça ira) pretty close to when it first came out and I really liked it. I am glad that you assigned it because it is one of my favorites and it helps me move through the day.
From Madame Easton's students at Cyprus High School, Magna, Utah (Manie 2021):
I LOVED IT!! It was so fun to listen to new music, and I even listen to a lot of these songs in my free time. I think Manie Musicale was very well done and I can wait for next years! French Is a beautiful language and Manie Musicale has made me fall in love with it even more! Thank you Madame Easton for giving us the opportunity to participate in it!
Manie Musicale is always one of the best parts of the school year in French class. It always widens my horizon of French music and exposes me to new artists and types of music I have never heard before. The program is amazing and is super engaging for everyone!
I really like this. At first, I thought this was dumb but it is actually very cool, after listening to a lot of songs I almost enjoy French music more than music I listen to now.
I liked how diverse the artists were!
I really had my doubts about Manie Musical i thought it would be boring, but I really enjoyed it and have a whole new list of songs to add to my playlist :)) Honestly i don't see anything that needs fixing and i'm excited to see the new songs that will compete next year!!
