John Lennon Educational Tour Bus

On October 23, 2013, we had the opportunity to host the John Lennon Bus at the Morrison Family YMCA!  What a great day!  Dozens of Charlotte families got the chance to meet the JLB crew, tour the mobile studio, play their musical equipment, and see some of the great videos that have been recorded on this one-of-a-kind music studio on wheels!

For more information and tour dates/locations, be sure to visit lennonbus.org

So honored to have had some of Contemporary Jazz's BEST visit our studio over the past year!  Keiko Matsui and Paul Brown have made appearances at Ballantyne School of Music, and some have even jammed with our instructors and students!!  It's so wonderful when professional musicians take time out of their busy schedules to share with our students!

Be sure to check back right HERE, to find out about upcoming guest appearances and master classes.  We have some surprises for 2017!

Last May, we were excited to have Victor Wooten at our studio for a private clinic.  Our students and local musician friends were thrilled to have the opportunity to meet him face to face and learn some new techniques.

Victor is currently on tour with Dennis Chambers and Bob Franceschini and performed May 15th at the Neighborhood Theater in NoDa.
