Jack’s Music Lesson with Music Gives Back
Jack and the band jamming with students from Little Kids Rock
As part of the Bose #MusicGivesBack campaign, Jack gave a free virtual music lesson last week! He shared some tricks and tips on ukulele and guitar, talked about his songwriting process, and told stories about some of his best-loved instruments. To support music education Bose is directing donations to some of Jack’s favorite non-profits including Little Kids Rock which is encouraging students to #MakeMusicAtHome, and DonorsChoose which has set up a special Johnson Ohana Foundation Giving Page to help get instruments into the hands of students across the country.
