John Lennon Bus Helps Kids Make Music, Art

The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus travels 10 months a year, visiting middle & high schools and colleges.
Carin Lamontagne

The John Lennon Educational Bus stopped this week in San Antonio, where it was stationed at Café College downtown.  The staff visited middle schools,  high schools and colleges where they help students write, record, and make videos for original music. 

Some students have never played instruments, so the bus staff also gave basic lessons. The bus has been around for 16 years, and they anticipate a second bus will be deployed in May for use in Europe.
