IMBODEN, Ark. (KAIT) - An Arkansas school is rocking out!
The Imboden area charter school in northeast Arkansas now has 6 acoustic guitars and two more are on the way, all thanks to the school's music teacher who applied for a grant from the Fender guitar corporation.
Teacher, Mike Mcleod, said this will allow students to "pic" up a new hobby and help students academically.
"There is a strong correlation between music and mathematics with timing and different aspects. They feel good about school, they feel good about themselves and that's very important in any school" said McLeod.
Your school may also be able to receive a grant from Fender. For more information, follow this link: http://www.fender.com/outreach/
