Northwest High School Choirs   

Greetings, Northwest Choir Community!

Wow, am I pumped to be here with you at Northwest High School!

Music is the most universal vehicle for communication and expression; therefore, any and all are welcome! My life is made whole and beautiful as I spend my days making beautiful music and growing with amazing students!

Chad Pittman is an active music educator, conductor and organist, currently living and working in northeast Ohio. Choirs under his direction have consistently earned superior ratings at state adjudicated events, and have received invitations to perform with prominent community, professional, and higher education organizations, and special sessions of OMEA and ACDA.

He serves as Director of Music and Organist for St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Massillon where he leads the adult and children’s vocal and bell choirs, plays the organ for weekly worship services, and coordinates “Cathedral Concerts in the Evening,” the church’s newly established professional concert series.

An active clinician and performer, he has presented workshops and recitals for houses of worship and educational institutions in several states. Immediate Past Dean of the American Guild of Organists, Canton Chapter, he chairs the program committee and is active in coordinating monthly programs and concerts.

He is co-founder of "Two Men and a Bench," a traveling organ duo, with duet partner Mark Thewes, of Canton. Since 2012, the two have presented concerts in churches and concert halls across the country. Most recently, they were honored with a rare invitation to perform a concert at the National Cathedral in Washington DC.

Mr. Pittman is currently a doctoral student in Music Education at Kent State University and holds the Master of Music in Choral Conducting from Michigan State University, a Master of Educational Administration from Cleveland State, and a Bachelor of Music Education and Organ Performance from the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music.

When not making music or spending time with amazing students and colleagues, Mr. Pittman enjoys collecting old/vintage vacuum cleaners, spending quality time with family, traveling anywhere and everywhere (the farther the better!), eating as much macaroni and cheese and ice cream as he can find, and spending time with his seven silly and rambunctious cats: Lucky (16 and naughty), Anton (loving and sluggish), Timmy (always thinking about food), Sammy (the cuddly one), Jasmine (the shy, cute one), Fizzy (the hiding Himalayan), and Hershey (the noisy three-legged escape artist)!
