The real magic bus

August 27, 2011 – The Who may have sang about it, but it was the memory of John Lennon that brought it to life.

This magic bus, the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, is a non-profit, state-of-the-art audio and HD video recording studio on wheels. The bus travels the country, visiting schools, musical and technology conferences and other events.

Why didn’t I know about this? it’s not like it just started rolling; it’s been active for 14 years, providing young people with free songwriting and multimedia production workshops. Yet I just discovered the project on Facebook today.

Next stop for the bus? Elmsford, N.Y., for two student recording sessions on Sept. 25 and 27.

Visit www.lennonbus.org for a full schedule and more information. You can also view projects created on board.

With all of the music and art programs being cut from schools across the country, with the help of the Lennon Bus, there may be hope for our creative future after all.
