Inspiring the next famous music composer, producer, or performer was the mission when ED played host to the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus on May 11th. Students from D.C. metro area school districts toured the bus to learn about the latest in music recording and production and then shared their own musical talents with Secretary Duncan, former Secretary Dick Riley, ED employees, and special guests from music organizations with a lunchtime concert on the Department’s plaza.
The Lennon Educational Tour Bus provides students with access to the latest music, audio, video, and broadcast technologies. The program works with local partners to schedule free events for middle, high-school, and college-age students to tour the bus, and experience the fascinating worlds of music production, and video and digital photography. The program is sponsored by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) as part of a project to expose students to the latest music, audio, video, and broadcast technologies.
