Pittman will deliver instruments to and jam with students from Pio Pico M.S. to celebrate Moksha Yoga’s $115,000 30-day fundraising challenge for Little Kids Rock
Los Angeles, CA, May 15 2013 – On Monday, May 20th, Monte Pittman, lead guitarist for Madonna and current solo artist, will jam with students at Pio Pico Middle School in Los Angeles, which is participating in the free Little Kids Rock music program. Moreover, Pittman will be arriving with free instruments for the students, courtesy of Moksha Yoga’s 30-day “Sweat For Change” fundraising Crowdrise challenge, which raised nearly $115,000 for Little Kids Rock to restore and revitalize music education in under-served public schools nationwide.
Little Kids Rock, the United States’ leading nonprofit provider of music education and free instruments to public school children, is currently reaching over 110,000 children with weekly music lessons amidst budget cuts that are eliminating music education from some of the nation’s most disadvantaged public schools. Nearly 3,000 current Little Kids Rock students receive free music education in 125+ Los Angeles/Pasadena.
Moksha Yoga LA, NYC and MNPLS combined their efforts to raise nearly $115,000 as part of a 30-day fundraising challenge on Crowdrise, to help Little Kids Rock bring free musical instruments and lessons to disadvantaged schoolchildren. Pittman, who joined Little Kids Rock’s honorary board in 2009, is going to help them deliver some of the new instruments that the funds have purchased.
Monte recently attended the 2013 Revolver Golden Gods event and was also interviewed on the black carpet. Check out the video below!
