A gift of music at South Spencer High School

Posted: Updated:
SPENCER CO., IN (WFIE) -

South Spencer High School has received the gift of music.

The music department received 12 brand-new acoustic guitars from the James Burton Foundation.
 
Burton is a rock and roll hall of famer and his foundation donates new musical instruments to schools and other organizations across the country.  

Music teacher Dave Malone tell 14 news he couldn't be happier.

"The old guitars that we had were very basic beginner model guitars. The guitars were harder to press down the strings upon the frets. It's difficult for beginners to learn that. It just takes a lot of hand strength. So, the new guitars will enable them to hold their strings down much more easily. Also, they have a better tone," Malone said.
