The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus will pull up to the Grayson Tech High School on October 24th, SAE Atlanta on October 25th, and Meadowcreek High School on October 27th for student recording sessions and interactive tours. For 14 years the Lennon Bus has provided free songwriting and multimedia production workshops to America’s youth. With the assistance of three on-board engineers, students learn how to write, perform, record, and produce original songs, produce and shoot music videos and documentaries and complete a broadcast quality music video.
Joel Kosche and Will Turpin from Collective Soul, will be on board the Bus on October 24th working with the students. Keyboardist Chuck Leavell, (The Allman Brothers Band, Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones) will be on the Bus working with students on October 25th. On October 27th, the Bus will offer interactive tours to students. The select group of students will have the opportunity to record their own original song and music video in the state-of-the-art studio used by artists such as the Black Eyed Peas, Natasha Bedingfield, and Justin Timberlake.
The concept began as an offshoot of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, which is dedicated to providing opportunities for both professional and amateur songwriters around the world. The Bus travels across the U.S. and Canada year-round, providing free tours and workshops at schools, retailers, festivals, on tours with headlining artists, and at major industry conferences.
