      Not having been born into a particularly musical family, and growing up in the rural Texas town of

      Sulphur Springs, presented School of Rock Fort Worth & School of Rock Mansfield General

      Manager/Music Director Andrew Sudderth with obvious challenges when it came to the realm of music

      discovery. This meant he had to seek it out for himself, and this was before the internet kids! Andrew

      took guitar lessons on and off throughout intermediate and secondary schooling in addition to taking

      advantage of school provided choral programs. Later in high school Andrew formed progressive hard

      rock band Fair to Midland which, not long after, came to be one of Dallas’ biggest drawing local acts

      resulting in catching the eyes and ears of the national and international music community. Fair to

      Midland eventually signed with Universal Records for their first international release and later with

      EOne for their second.

      Andrew worked under Grammy award winning producer David Bottrill (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel,

      Tool, Muse) during the making of Fair to Midland’s first record and later under Grammy award winner

      Joe Baressi (Queens of the Stone Age, Bad Religion, Melvins) for Fair to Midland’s sophomore effort.

      Andrew also earned co-production credits on the group’s sophomore album. It was also during the

      making of Fair to Midland’s first record Andrew trained under World renowned vocal instructor Ron

      Anderson; famous for having worked with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Chris Cornell, Axl Rose, Alicia

      Keys, Bjork, and many many more.

      Throughout both record cycles Fair to Midland not only played a number of prestigious festivals (i.e.

      Coachella, Download, Rock Am Ring/Rock Am Park), but also played with everyone from The Smashing

      Pumpkins, Alice in Chains, and Tool to Amy Winehouse (oddly enough) and System of a Down.

      Andrew continues to write music recreationally when he is not randomly trolling School of Rock

      hallways comically yelling at children and ruining his body w/ synthetic caffeine and bad eating habits.

      Nick Tittle began belting out his jazzy feel-good tunes under the wing of Fort Worth local legend Scott Copeland. Starting back in 2010, Nick would rehearse on an empty stage after closing time and without an audience at the Thirsty Armadillo in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards. This melodic pioneer fed off of musicians like Ray LaMontagne, Alice in Chains, and Otis Redding. Since then, he has created his own unique style that is now taking him to stages in front of audiences all over Texas. His debut album - titled appropriately, 'Screaming for Candy Art' - hit the shelves in 2013. The tracks blast altruistic original euphonies that are a refreshing addition to the Texas music scene. He is now the lead singer/rhythm guitar player for Fort Worth band Arenda Light.

      School Of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education, has announced that MEGADETH lead singer and guitarist Dave Mustaine will visit the school's Frisco, Texas location on Friday, February 19. Mustaine will give musical guidance to School Of Rock students, working personally with the future rock stars to help advance their musical skills. Additionally, the artist will join students from School Of Rock Fort Worth on stage to perform a few MEGADETH tracks, both classic and new, for the rest of the school, contest winners from the Dallas-Fort Worth community, and the students' families.

      Mustaine brings a true rock 'n' roll experience to the aspiring young musicians of all nine Dallas-Fort Worth School Of Rock locations. His visit to School Of Rock comes just before the kick-off of MEGADETH's "Dystopia" world tour, on February 20, in Dallas, Texas, celebrating the band's fifteenth studio album.


      School Of Rock continues to be an innovator in the musical education industry. The program takes students beyond the classroom and to some of rock 'n' roll's most famous stages, such as Chicago's House Of Blues and Lollapalooza. School Of Rock is using this event to celebrate the opening of School Of Rock Plano, its ninth Dallas-Fort Worth area location. Dave Mustaine adds to the curriculum's authenticity as it gives students the opportunity to play side-by-side with a professional musician. Mustaine's extensive background and rock n' roll expertise make him an ideal guest to join the School Of Rock staff who lives to play music.

      "At School Of Rock, we strive to provide cutting-edge opportunities that sharpen our students' instrument skills and strengthen their dedication," says Dzana Homan, CEO of School Of Rock. "We are fortunate to have rock legend Dave Mustaine share his musical expertise. His passion for rock 'n' roll is the ultimate inspiration that will motivate our students to channel their inner rock stars."
