MVB Students Work With The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus To Create Original Music!

Queens Village, NY On September 27th, 2018, students from Martin Van Buren High School in Queens Village, New York came together to create an original song and music video in one single day on The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus presented by OWC. Seniors Tawni Haris, Trenice Johnson, Dinelle Martin, Teren Washington, Junior... and Sophomore... worked together to write and perform "Culture" on the grounds of Martin Van Buren High School long unto the night. 
The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus is a state-of-the-art mobile audio and HD video recording and production facility. In its 21st year, the Bus continues to provide young people with tours of the studios, participate in free digital media production workshops, and produce giant peace signs. Assisted by three on-board engineers, the Bus travels the nation visiting schools, conferences and events, partnering with communities and media outlets to call attention to the importance of arts and digital media education.
