A touring music recording studio named in memory of slain Beatle John Lennon will make a stop Monday at the Crown Point Junior Music Academy.
Students at the school in Pacific Beach earned the visit by the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus by winning a video contest run by the National Association of Music Merchants. The bus will stay for two days, during which the school kids will be able to write, record and produce an original song and music video.
On Tuesday, the school will host a will host a “SupportMusic” community forum when it will be presented with musical instruments and equipment worth $3,500 from various manufacturers.
The forum will bring together school officials, community leaders and NAMM members to share strategies for incorporating music education as part of the curriculum.
The Lennon Bus has traveled across the U.S. and Canada year-round for 19 years, providing free tours and workshops at schools, retailers, festivals, on tours with headlining artists, and at major industry conferences.
