Nick Tittle Guitar Teacher, Drum Teacher, Bass Guitar Teacher
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.
Brooke Nelson General Manager
Brooke comes to us with a wide background in management. She has managed childcare centers and gymnastics gyms and even dance companies. She loves music, hockey and her two children Layla and Niyah. She is currently in school finishing up a bachelors in business. Brooke couldn’t be more excited to move back to her hometown of Mansfield, TX to start with School of Rock, and she looks forward to helping kids explore the arts and find themselves.
Matthew Chapman Guitar Teacher
Winning a guitar playing competition at Six Flags at age 12 only confirmed what Matt already knew. He was a guitar player, foremost and forever. Matt shares a characteristic with Jimi Hendrix in that he is rarely seen without a guitar in his hands, no matter where he is. Quiet and thoughtful, Matt transforms on stage into a swirling note devil, sonically surfing over wave upon wave of raw powerful sound. Like Slash, he defies the predictability of category, and seeks to be completely responsive to the atmos of the moment, fast or fluid. His phrasing has an eloquence that is the voice of his soul.
