Fresno Elementary Students Rock The Halls During Recess

Posted: Updated:
Many students at Pyle Elementary School in Fresno like to pick guitars during recess and rock the hallways.   Vice-Principal Rob Roellke is the creative genius behind playing guitars at recess at Pyle Elementary.  He put out a call to the community for guitars. 

They now have a dozen guitars but when they arrived on campus many were in sad shape.  "Most of them needed repair so I went on the Internet and figured out how to repair them and fix them up and now we've got quite a few."  Right now there is no budget for the guitar break group, which means there is no instructor.  There is a DVD that provides the basics. 

Ernie Gonzales likes to strum during recess. "I like playing it and I like hearing the sounds about it." The guitars are available to every student during the morning break.  Most of the guitar pickers are regulars.  " A lot of the kids will give up their recess to actually come over and do that.  Some of the kids would rather do that because they don't feel comfortable doing something else on the playground."

Lilly Medina enjoys playing during recess.  "I get to play all the time and I get to learn more how to play the guitar."
These kids aren't ready to perform on stage but they do like making music in the hallways.  Vice-Principal Rob Roellke is always hoping for more guitars and budget money to hire an instructor.

If you would like to donate a guitar you can drop it by Pyle Elementary during regular business hours.  Pyle Elementary is located at 4140 N. Augusta in Fresno.
