John Lennon Educational
Tour Bus Rolls into Richardson

The Lennon Educational Bus is a mobile recording studio.

The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus recently spent time at Berkner High School, working with students to produce a One Day Music Video.

The Lennon Bus is a non-profit outreach program with the mission of giving young people a chance to express themselves through music, video and broadcast productions. Through One Day Music Video Production, The Lennon Bus and staff provide an opportunity for students to create and produce original song and video projects. Berkner HS senior, Beckett Wanamaker, composed the music and lyrics to a song, while other Berkner HS fine arts students worked with him to record it, mix it, shoot video, and produce a music video of their work.

“This opportunity for our Berkner HS students to write a piece of music from scratch and record in a professional sound studio is a once in a lifetime experience,” said Berkner HS Band Director Jason Schayot. “At the end of the day, they will walk away with an original song that they personally wrote, complete with instrumental horn riffs, digitally mastered, and set to a professional music video that they star in – that’s a great day’s work!”

The Lennon Bus is an advocate for arts and digital media education and works with educators and school administrators across the U.S. to underscore the importance of these subject areas within the core curriculum.  “This is a real world application of what we practice here every day,” said Morgen Crowder, Berkner HS Assistant Principal. “It is an amazing opportunity to allow students to see potential career paths that ultimately mix their passion with their education.”

The program works together with local partners to create free events for students to participate in the production of music, video and digital photography projects reflective of their ideas and concerns, regardless of their levels of expertise.
