Renowned Ethnomusicologist Shares at ASCC
As part of the Samoana Jazz & Arts Festival earlier this month, renowned ethnomusicologist Dr. Richard Moyle of New Zealand visited the American Samoa Community College (ASCC) to take part in a panel discussion titled “The Ethnomusicology of Samoa.” The panel included ASCC music instructor Kuki Tuiasosopo, who had initially become familiar with Dr. Moyle’s extensive research on Pacific music while pursuing a graduate degree in Ethnomusicology at UH Manoa. “Dr. Moyle gave a very insightful and enjoyable presentation that afternoon, but because it was organized as a festival event, his audience consisted mostly of academics and some interested community members rather than students, which made me think that students most of all should hear about his work.”
ASCC Education Majors form Association
Education majors at the American Samoa Community College have formed a new student organization they have named the Lumana’i Educators Association. “The purpose of the club is for our students to network with each other and assist those who need help with their courses, as well as to provide exposure for the programs our Teacher Education Department (TED) has to offer,” said Mrs. Christine Fuimaono, who serves as the organization’s Staff Advisor, while Mrs. Feleni Alainuuese serves as Faculty Advisor.
