A third student joined the pair at a keyboard. “There you go, you got it,” instructor Robert Ochoa encouraged the group. A few steps away, groups of teenagers huddled around DJ control boards and the latest speaker models, mixing their own sets. The setting wasn’t a professional music studio — it was a high school field. The High School Nation tour and John Lennon Educational Tour Bus made a stop today at Martin Luther King High School in East Germantown. At the event, high schoolers got try all kinds of musical activities. They wrote songs, mixed tracks, played instruments and danced to their classmates’ sounds. The tour is stopping 20 East Coast cities; three stops in New Jersey are scheduled for next week. The events aim to give kids exposure to music and other culture, especially as states and school districts struggle to fund arts programs. There are plenty of music festivals around, High School Nation founder Jimmy Cantillon said, but “there’s nothing that’s just for teens.” Staldings-Smith took a break from the drums only to motion to another to teen to join the group on the keyboard. The 10th-grader played drums before, but said he liked playing with others. “Everyone is playing at once,” he said.
