The NAMM Foundation and the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus sponsored a video contest that answered the question, “What Makes Music Education Great in Your School?” Six winners were selected to host a two-day residency with The NAMM Foundation and the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus.
Produced in collaboration with the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, the Community Forum spring tour begins in San Diego, CA with a webcast on the morning of February 2 to celebrate the benefits of music education, with a special focus on the community’s commitment to assuring access and opportunity.
Stay tuned for music performances and panelists! More information coming soon.
