"How I met my Teacher" personal reflections on a formative relationship compiled and edited by Masha Buell Mike Franklin's Muses History and Music My name is Mike Franklin. I perform with Jennifer Francisco as the duo Moresca, and now as a Renaissance band called Musical Banquet: Chris Verrette, violin, Joelle Morton, viola da gamba, John Edwards, lute, Shawn Spicer, cornetto, Dominic Teresi, dulcian, Jen Francisco, percussion, and me on shawm and recorders .I play in Recordare, a trio performing late medieval and Renaissance music with A very MacLean, and Stephanie Martin. I demonstrate period music and instruments at museums and historic sites. I perform mostly European medieval , Renaissance, and traditional music with voice, shawms, bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy, recorders, flutes, percussion and sometimes even the crumhorn! Some are fairly close copies of surviving instruments, or recreations based on paintings, drawings, descriptions. Some are from various folk traditions . On some of these instruments I have little formal training, nor do I limit myself to repertoire from their traditions. I don't remember much of my very first teachers. My journey of learning has been largely a selfdirected process. Clio is, off the top of my head , my Muse of History if it's not too presumptuous to claim the Muses as my teachers. They never seem too far away . Here's my earliest musical memory (almost earliest memory!)- my dad , a visual artist, but he sang folk music and played guitar with people (this was the early 60's) at our apartment in the evening. I remember slipping out into the hallway (I was supposed to be asleep), sitting listening. Around grade 6 I wanted to play drums. My dad bought me a starter set. I had two different teachers, one in the basement at the Edward Johnson building. He had me change the way I held the sticks. I'd started with the traditional marching band side drum style grip. I played along with my parents' Jazz and Big Band records. In grade 7 I was put into the string class. I guess I'd done well enough on the music test. But I was disappointed since I was already learning drums! I decided the least objectionable was double bass, and dropped the drums. I played bass in grades 7, 8, and 9 with Mr. Green - the first music teacher I remember by name. Although I didn't take music in high school I continued to play. I liked that I could play bass in all the ensembles: string orchestra, orchestra, band, dance band, and show band! But I gave up the double bass after grade 10. If I'd known what I know now I'd have kept up the strings and maybe started singing. If I'd taken up violin, today I wouldn't be looking for someone to play medieval fiddle! In grades 6 and 7 I was getting into baroque music (my mom gave me a copy of Switched On Bach). fvtA'RJV'RIE SPA'RKS VVICE STUVIV MART~ff SPARKS, SOPRANO -s.1-1us. -s. ro.
