Scotts Valley High ROP Music Production and Recording Arts Students get a visit from the John Lennon Educational Bus!

Students were able to record an original song written in class on the John Lennon Bus February 22nd.  Following the bus visit the NAMM Foundation held a SupportMusic Community Forum at the high school. Students, teachers, administrators and community leaders served on the panels. Santa Cruz County Superintendent of Schools, Michael Watkins, opened up the event moderated by Mary Luehrsen, Executive Director of the NAMM Foundation.  Closing the event were proclamations given to the John Lennon Foundation and the NAMM Foundation by County Supervisor, Bruce McPherson.

We all hope that the state will see the value and importance of music in our schools and designate funding for music education!
