SAE Institute Atlanta and Grayson Technical High School Rock The Lennon Bus

On October 24th and 25th Avid brought The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus to Georgia for school and campus visits that resulted in amazing music videos, tours, and student access to some of rock’s great artists.


The week began at Grayson Technical High School in Loganville, GA, where Jennifer Fero, assistant principal, and Tim Johnson, music technology instructor, hosted a tour stop.  Six students were specially selected from dozens who auditioned for an opportunity to create a music video with Rolling Stones keyboardist, Chuck Leavell:



The Grayson Technical High School students created a complete music video in Avid Pro Tools and Media Composer that includes special guest keyboard tracks by Mr. Leavell:

The Lennon Bus then drove into downtown Atlanta to spend a day at SAE Institute Atlanta, where Joel Kosche and Will Turpin from Collective Soul, both Avid Pro Tools artists, helped produce a student music video:

The Georgia week ended at Lost Mountain Middle School in Cobb County, where hundreds of students had an opportunity to tour the audio and video studios on The Lennon Bus.


Thanks to SAE, Grayson Technical High Schol, Lost Mountain Middle School, Chuck, Joel, Will, the amzing John Lennon Bus pro's and especially the students who make the Bus' mission possible.
