The John Lennon Songwriting Bus, seen on Good Morning America, CBS This Morning and Today Show, will be stopping at only one location in the San Francisco Bay Area this Tuesday, April 30th -- Ex’pression  Center for New Media (Emeryville, Calif.) from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The touring bus, engineered by Ex’pression graduates Jeff Sobel and Herm Qurioz, is teaming up with the school’s Sound Arts Placement Department to potentially fill another audio engineering position. To date, Ex’pression Center for New Media  has placed four employees and four externship positions with the John Lennon Songwriting Bus.

The John Lennon Songwriting Education Tour Bus provides educational programs directed toward high schools, colleges, musical festivals, concerts and conventions. Its goal is to educate audiences about the art of songwriting, recording technologies and video production. As it travels the country, the program seeks to encourage students to learn how to write and produce audio and video projects using contemporary instruments, computer hardware and many of the current technological advances. Most notably, the Bus has provided free hands-on educational labs at over 100 high schools.

The Tour Bus is a mobile recording studio outfitted with the latest musical instruments and gear. It includes 32-track digital recording, two computers, multiple CD burners, and film scoring and video-editing capabilities. The interior is divided into two separate recording environments. The front studio offers the chance to participate in creating multimedia projects, while the back studio is a more traditional setup for bands and remote recordings of concerts and special events.
