Bio

Etienne

“Canada's Favourite Children's Artist of the Year (2004)” (CMW Awards, Much Music, MTV) is at it again. Coming off a successful five-month North American Tour, Etienne is preparing for his highly anticipated World Tour in 2005. Running from February to July, this new concert tour will see him perform shows from coast to coast in Canada and the United States as well as several shows in major cities throughout New Zealand and Australia.

Since arriving on the Children's music scene in 1993, tens of thousand of children, parents and educators, in homes and classrooms around the world, have been rockin' and hip hoppin' to the distinctive English, French, and Spanish music of Etienne. One of the most recognizable names in Children's and Educational music, Etienne breaks down barriers and makes learning frun for all ages. Parents and teachers praise the music as inspiring. Each song effectively teaches a range of topics from basic alphabetical, numbers and vocabulary to all forms or grammar. The popularity of the music and the demand for concert appearances compels Etienne to split his teaching duties with his musical obligations. His performances are praised as “interactive and motivating,” “a class act,” and the “ultimate educational experience.” Etienne juggles a teaching career with sold-out concert tours, annually presenting keynote addresses and workshops at major North American Foreign language conferences, as well as writing and producing new material.

Etienne is the stage-name of Steven Langlois, a teacher with the Greater Essex County District School Board. Born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, he began performing at a young age. While attending the University of Windsor, where he graduated with a B.A in French language and Literature and a B. Ed., he began composing songs designed to help children learn English, French and Spanish using popular styles of music. Now residing in La Salle, Ontario with his wife and two children, he has taught English and French to students from grades one to twelve for the past eleven years.

Etienne authors and composes for several widely-used international school programs by leading educational companies including Thomson Nelson, Oxford University Press, Pearson Educations, Prentice Hall, Ginn and Gage Canada. His music is distributed in most major music stores and by Children's and Educational distributors worldwide.
