Guitar

A flier had been sent to Middletown schools indicating that a beginning lesson would be provided, and that students did not need to bring a guitar to attend, according to a press release. Seven students ranging in age from 5 to 10 showed up, and had guitars waiting for them.

They were donated by the organization #Smilesicantsee, headed by Vincent Rodriguez, who has a mission to get children in need the ability to get a guitar at no cost to them, the news release said. He is up to about 83 guitars so far and counting.

Rodriguez is trying to reach 100 guitars, but will keep going as long as he gets donations, TBT said.

Terri Lachance, a teacher and area musician, became aware of the crusade and decided to bring together his mission, and teacher Lynn Tracey was willing to donate her time to the city. “Imagine the pure glee the students had knowing after the lesson the guitar was theirs to keep forever. There was amazement in the air since none of the students were told ahead of time that they would get a guitar to take home,” the statement said.

Tracey, an accomplished jazz musician and guitar teacher, used her skill in reaching these beginner students of “eclectic ages, in a motivating upbeat method that kept their attention throughout the entire lesson,” the organization said.
