what isThe Bandwagon?
Sometimes referred to as a mobile music classroom from the future, the Bandwagon is a 2016 Mercedes Sprinter Van which has been carefully designed and painstakingly converted into a state-of-the-art mobile music classroom, recording studio and much more! Comprising cutting edge technology and over 15 years of industry experience, the Bandwagon provides a hands on sonic experience for students to access and develop instrumental skills and the opportunities to refine these musical abilities in a safe, fun and inspiring way.
The Bandwagon has seven ‘stations’ on board, each with an iPad, a controller keyboard (novation launch key 49), a DI box with effects for guitar/bass, a mic XLR input and headphones with individual mixes allowing students to hear each other, or just themselves, and change the levels accordingly. In this way students can work on headphones, focussing practicing a piece individually before playing either through the on board QSC K10 speaker or through the headphones to the rest of the group.
