John Lennon Real Love Project  (JLRLP) – Grades 3-8

STEAM Fund, in partnership with Theatre Within, is proud to bring the JLRLP to Public School Children.  The JLRLP is a visionary songwriting program for public school children where the students first learn about John Lennon’s life, music and highest values of peace, love and equality.  Then, under the guidance of our teaching artists, they write their own lyrics to John’s song Real Love and then record their own version of the song accompanied by John’s original piano and vocal tracks.  A video for each school is then posted on the John Lennon Tribute YouTube Channel for all to see.  The project is endorsed by Yoko Ono and the Lennon Estate.  READ MORE
