JOHN LENNON EDUCATIONAL TOUR BUS & MUSIC GENERATION SOUTH DUBLIN
Music production will become mobile in Tallaght next week when the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus in partnership with Music Generation South Dublin rolls into the grounds of Library Square in Tallaght. The bus, which contains a fully equipped state-of-the-art music studio, is offering an amazing opportunity to young aspiring South Dublin musicians, to spend a day on board, work with a world class crew of engineers to record and produce original music, produce and shoot music videos and documentaries and complete a broadcast quality music video. They will also be offering public tours of the bus on 23rd July.
The South Dublin visit is the start of a 24-day Irish national tour which will take in 11 counties and reach over 100 young musicians throughout Ireland.
The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus is a non-profit state-of-the-art mobile audio and HD video recording and production facility. The Bus, which was made possible by Yoko Ono Lennon, is dedicated to providing young people with tours of the studios and participation in free songwriting and multimedia production workshops. With the assistance of three on-board engineers, young aspiring musicians learn how to write, perform, record, and produce original songs, produce and shoot music videos and documentaries and complete a broadcast quality music video. Young musicians on board will have the opportunity to experience this extraordinary world class education resource.
Avril Crotty, Coordinator of Music Generation South Dublin said “We are delighted to have this fantastic opportunity to work with the John Lennon Bus team and bring a real sense of excitement to music education in South Dublin this summer. It’s wonderful to see the young people having the opportunity to put their musical skills into practice on the John Lennon Bus. Music Generation South Dublin is continuously looking at new and exciting ways to encourage young people into music education and I can’t think of anything that would capture their imagination more than the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus.”
Brian Rothschild, Executive Director of The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus stated “It is fantastic for us to have the opportunity to tour Ireland and meet so many talented and vibrant young people. There is such a terrific energy and national momentum for music education here and it is wonderful to be working with Music Generation and the local Music Education Partnerships who, like the Lennon Bus are empowered to opening up access to music for the new generation. Our aim is to build on this great sense of enthusiasm, and inspire musicians of the future through our mission and the wonderful, state of the art production facilities on board the bus."
