The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus rolled into Ventura today and parked at the Sheridan Way Elementary School off Ventura Avenue. Working with students who participate in the Harmony Project, a handful of students from area schools came together to write, perform and learn about how to make a track and video of the experience.

The bus is a non-profit mobile recording studio dedicated to the providing students of all ages with free hands-on opportunities.

Today was special because Lawrence Juber, former guitarist for Paul McCartney’s band Wings, presided over songwriting, recording and mixing. Because public school music programs are all but extinct, this is a chance for young artists to live the dream for a day.  Now in its 20th year of service, the bus tours the country, driving over 200,000 miles annually around America. Cool beans!
