      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.

      Alex Knagg was born & raised in Dallas,TX. He has always had a deep connection with music since he was a young kid. He loves all genres of music & has an appreciation for all styles. He grew up watching his brother play in a punk rock band and thought it was the coolest thing he'd ever seen. That set the path for Alex & was the foundation of his passion for music. Growing up he spent all of his spare time going to rock shows in Deep Ellum & anywhere in Texas that had a killer show!

      Alex has spent over 15 years of his life working in sales, and has over 10 years with international apparel & shoe company, Vans. He started as a store manager, and quickly worked his way into regional management. Alex was appointed to Vans' Go-Team opening new stores from here to California, winning multiple awards for excellence along the way. In fact, Alex won the Sole Award, only given out to 1 person in the entire company each year, which is the highest award you can get. (go, Alex!)

      He has always had a passion for working with people and making everyone around him feel appreciated & valued. He loves building relationships and watching people grow, and comes from an education-centered family.

      Born and raised in northeastern Oklahoma, Saxon started learning music at the young age of 8. Like his father before him, he started out as and remains today a brass musician. Like many musicians however, he picked up many other instruments as the years went by starting with Bass, then Guitar, and recently Vocals. Saxon came from a very classical style background that spread to tastes in Jazz and Rock n' Roll.

      After high school, Saxon earned a scholarship for his musical ability and attended college at The University of Nevada at Las Vegas. There he earned a bachelor's degree in Music Performance. UNLV gave Saxon many diverse and interesting opportunities to perform. Some notable things included performing with a marching band at the Electric Daisy Carnival, performing on two of the UNLV Wind Orchestra's albums, founding a progressive rock band called Habit, and traveling to Austria to perform internationally with his tuba quartet.

      After graduating, Saxon moved to Dallas to work and experience new things. There he discovered School of Rock and has been hooked ever since! When Saxon is not teaching at School of Rock, he currently writes, records, and performs in multiple bands in the DFW area. He plays guitar and sings in bands such as: Ether After and No One's Watching. He plays bass in bands such as: Astro Veil, Post Palace, and Bad James. You can find all of these groups online via Facebook and other social media sites.

      Ethan's first musical endeavors were with the drums. A drum set was given to him when he was about 7 or 8 and he knew immediately that’s what he wanted to fo. He would spend hours a day teaching himself to play different drum beats and songs that his parents always listened to- Everything from Al Green to Led Zeppelin to The Beatles. After a couple of years of beating the drums he decided to learn guitar. His dad got an acoustic guitar for Christmas, and he fell in love with it. Ethan spent the majority of his waking hours teaching himself chords, scales, songs, and playing in bands with friends.

      After teaching himself the basics, his interest in music grew and grew. He joined the School of Rock Frisco the week it opened and loved everything about it. Learning different songs every week, playing with other talented kids, and eventually touring with the School of Rock greatly enhanced his musicianship and shaped him into the person he is today.

      Maddie started out at the Memphis School of Rock, where she was always being influenced by Jazz, Blues, Country, and the ever-classic Rock n Roll of Memphis in the early 2000s. When she made her way to Texas in 2013 she found herself living down the street from Frisco SoR, and the rest is history.

      Though a classical vocalist at the core, Maddie's tried (and generally failed) to play a bunch of other instruments, including guitar, bass, and piano... But never drums. They scare her.

      Now she works at the front desk while finishing up her high school career and simultaneously working on some music-related side projects.

      Born and raised in DFW, Taylor Ketchum has pursued musical endeavors from a young age.
      After receiving his dad's old record player and a goldmine of records from the 1950's through the 1980's, Taylor knew that where his passions lay. The Beach Boys, Sergio Mendez, and Yes to name a few, launched Taylor into a world of musical exploration of which he still inhabits today.
      Starting with the Bassoon and upright bass in middle school and high school, teaching himself guitar along the way, and eventually graduating to drum line, he has had a constant hunger to learn new instruments and new music to go along with them.
      As an adult Taylor continues to be involved in a heavily saturated music lifestyle, enjoying all genres of music, playing in bands and recording, and still learning and discovering new things everyday. Taylor joined the School of Rock Team in 2017 and loves to teach and relishes the opportunity to share his knowledge and love of music with everyone.

      Anthony was born in Albuquerque New Mexico in the Summer of 96. Anthony lived in Albuquerque for the first couple years of his life before moving to a little speck on the map called Folsom, NM. Struck with boredom and to much time he decided at the age of 11 that he was gonna learn to play the fiddle with some help from one of the local musician's. After dabbling in the art of fiddle he played with a country band called Colfax County Reunion for his early teen years and also began teaching himself to play the guitar.

      During his later high school years Anthony developed a love for punk and with the help of some of his childhood friends started a band called Senseless Urgency. He also played in a ska band called Renegade Parade following high school.

      Anthony moved to Texas recently in hopes of growing his music career and fortunately also found the School of Rock and has been teaching here since 2016.

      Rebecca Hansen was born under the California sun and made her way across the US of A to good ol' Denton, TX where she grew up with a very musical family. Having always sung, she spent many years studying vocals privately until she got accepted into the University of North Texas to continue her professional training in vocal performance.

      She's had many performance opportunities that include but are not limited to performing with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, and world famous movie composer Hans Zimmer! Her interests in music go beyond artistry, but into theory, genre, style and technique. She has taken those interests and integrated herself into the Metroplex community as a Private Vocals Instructor for 7 years.

      This is her first season at School of Rock, and she can't wait to continue passing on her love for music to rockin' kids who want to pursue their musical dreams.

      I've known since I was a little girl how much music meant to me. Growing up, I was in church and school choir, but my life revolved around musical theatre. Within the span of 8 years I racked up to 40+ shows in my back pocket. Anywhere from me playing Annie in Annie, Belle in Beauty & the Beast, to Aida in Aida. Musical theatre taught me a lot, but as I explored into other genres of music, I realized, I can sing just about anything I want to. I decided to start with pop (Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, *NSYNC, J-Lo) I learned their techniques and runs and writing in the "pop" style. Then moved to Country (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Miranda Lambert, Civil Wars, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn) If you asked 14 year old Nyssa what kind of artist I wanted to be I would've sworn country.

      Then, Rock came along. I've always listened to rock music, thanks to my dad, who me 80's rock (Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Queen, Twisted Sister, Guns n Roses, Poison, etc) but I never quite loved it as much as Country...until around 16 years old when I completely transitioned myself to Rock. At 16, I opened up for Great White, Stone Sour, and Chevelle. At 18, I performed at the Whisky A Go Go in LA, and my band (Awaiting Daylight) won "Best Rock Artist of the Year" at the IMEA awards, with one nomination of "Best Song of the Year-Fool" I've performed in front of 1 person in any deep ellum club, to performing in front of 1700 people at the House of Blues. I love working with kiddos and to teach them and help them grow as a singer and with their stage presence.

      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."
