identifying and tracking

identifying and tracking mass engagement across an entire community, while providing deep, descriptive case studies in a range of different institutional settings that personalize the approach for individual and environment. The MEP research and evaluation paradigm provides a framework for uniting theory and practice in a way that is of immediate value to general classroom teachers who are often called upon to act as music educators with little or no confidence or skill base. The ACT Government and the ANU, in the lead-up to Canberra‟s centenary in 2013, are now collaborating in an expansion of the Music Education Program‟s research paradigm beyond its local arena to make the practices and findings of the Program available more widely.

SECTION: Music for Lifelong Learning COUNTRIES: Canada, United States of America PROJECT: A STATE-OF-THE-ART MOBILE RECORDING FACILITY DEDICATED TO BRINGING THE POWER OF MUSIC AND THE ARTS TO STUDENTS AND PEOPLE OF ALL AGES: THE JOHN LENNON EDUCATIONAL TOUR BUS DESCRIPTION: The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to sharing the power of music and the arts with people of all ages, fashioned in the sprit of John Lennon‟s legacy, and with continuing participation and support from his wife Yoko Ono. The mission of the Lennon Bus is to champion the power of music and to advocate for its continued presence in the school life of children. It contends that creativity is a right, not a privilege, and that each person has an empowering creative voice. The core and most visible aspect of the project is a state-of-theart mobile Pro Audio and HD video recording facility, now in its fourteenth year of touring. It provides hands-on experience for students in grade school, middle school, high school and college, and from all walks of life. The Bus is an offshoot of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, a parallel yet missionrelated project that encourages the careers of professional and amateur songwriters. On a few occasions, winners from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest have recorded their original songs on the Bus. The Bus currently travels the year-round across the USA and Canada, providing on-board tours and participation in free songwriting and multimedia production workshops. While there is a core staff of experienced engineers who live and work on the road, the Lennon Bus also links to a wide variety of partners/volunteers including professionals from the worlds of entertainment and media who motivate and inspire participants through mentorship and collaboration. On any given day, in any given city, the Lennon staff welcomes a team of students onto the Bus. There they learn how to write, perform, record, and produce original songs, produce and shoot music videos and documentaries and complete a broadcast quality music video – all in one day. They use the very same equipment used by the world‟s great artists. Digital media workshops are also offered to teachers, enabling them to bring their knowledge back into the classroom. The Bus is highly adaptable, and is designed to provide students, their schools and communities with performances, demonstrations, remote recordings, and studio sessions customized for their needs, levels of experience and interest. Over the past three years, the Bus has engaged in a number of special humanitarian projects, one of which is the Liyana Tour. Liyana, a performing group from Zimbabwe made up of persons with disabilities, is an inspiration and a testament to the amazing power of music and how it can transform and enrich the lives of all people. The tour brought the music of Zimbabwe to audiences in 33 venues over 30 days, on two coasts, and partnered with the directorial team of the Documentary “Music by Prudence “ that received the Oscar for Documentary Short in 2010. Another project in 2011 worked with citizens in Miami. The Bus produced two compelling videos entitled “Honor Our Veterans,” giving homage to soldiers. Both are available for free on YouTube.com. CURRENT STATUS: The Lennon Bus is thriving as it approaches fifteen years of successful operations in the USA and Canada. While the project has been underwritten, to date, primarily by sponsorships with corporations such as Apple, Sony, Montblanc and Avid, a multi-faceted fundraising program will soon be initiated to ensure the project‟s long-term sustainability, and to fuel replication internationally, including an upcoming program in Liverpool, England. 197
