Bach to Rock Music School Opens 12 New Schools Across the U.S.

Bach to Rock Music School Opens 12 New Schools Across the U.S.

3 weeks ago

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today the launch of 12 new schools that have recently opened or will open by early 2019, in the states of Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, Texas and Washington. Nationally, Bach to Rock is experiencing a robust and steady growth, with 36 schools presently operating.  Nineteen of those schools are in eight Top Ten markets, ranked by population.  Bach to Rock is trending to become a $15 million brand, teaching over 10,000 children and adults this year alone, and over 45,000 since the company’s inception in 2007.                

The new schools are in the following cities:   

  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • San Diego, California  
  • Tampa, Florida
  • Orlando, Florida
  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • Paramus, New Jersey
  • Patterson, New Jersey
  • Dallas, Texas
  • Seattle, Washington

“We are very pleased with the national expansion of our brand.   I attribute our momentum to several factors.  First, there is a huge marketplace need in communities across the United States for the unique, high quality music enrichment program that Bach to Rock provides.  Second, we have a strong and dedicated group of new and existing franchisees, who are truly invested in their businesses.  And third, is our corporate team. They are the heart of our brand and ensure all of our franchisees are fully equipped for success,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.  “A Bach to Rock franchise is a solid business opportunity for someone who is entrepreneurial, motivated and eager to help revamp music education.  Our brand has taken off because we are sustainable, profitable and we start up quickly,” continued Gross.

Changing the Way Students Learn Music 

Bach to Rock is reshaping music education on a national scale by turning solitary, boring music lessons into a group activity that is more like a team sport.  B2R focuses on providing a well-balanced music education because, ultimately, that is what parents are looking for. Unlike other music school franchises, Bach to Rock has an extensive curriculum. Students learn the intricacies of music — from theory to how to read music. Bach to Rock is the music school kids would have designed for themselves.  They get to jam with other kids right away and play current hits. The learning is the same, but the enjoyment factor is much higher.  

Bach to Rock Franchise Opportunities 

Bach to Rock has repeatedly been named to Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 and has ranked it as one of the 500 Powerhouse Brands and on its Next 300 Franchise System list.

Bach to Rock franchisees are provided with an array of tools to position them for success, including extensive hands-on training, marketing and public relations support and a proprietary web-based management system, along with demonstrated techniques for business growth.  Franchisees also benefit from multiple revenue streams such as individual and group classes, early childhood education programs, a DJ school, state-of-the-art recording studios, summer and winter camps, birthday parties and more.

Bach to Rock is currently seeking qualified candidates to open franchise locations in major metropolitan markets throughout the country. Bach to Rock is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to build a business that is dedicated to helping children and adults learn to play the music they love. To learn more about music school franchise ownership opportunities with Bach to Rock, as well as its veteran and franchise referral programs, contact Ralph Rillon, vice president of franchise development, at 1-855-227-7570 or franchise@bachtorock.com, or visit www.bachtorockfranchise.com.

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, proudly announces the opening of a new school in Plymouth, Minnesota.  The community is invited to the free grand opening festivities on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at 4345 Nathan Lane N., Plymouth, MN, 55442. Attendees are welcome to tour the school, enjoy a free music lesson, learn about individual lessons and group classes, try out free toddler “Mommy and Me” classes, enter prize drawings and giveaways, and check out the recording studio. They can also enjoy performances by instructors and special guests such as Chris Hawkey, a KFAN DJ and musical artist, who will attend from 3 – 4 p.m.

“Bach to Rock is generating a lot of momentum as we open more schools across the country.  We are delighted to debut our first school in Minnesota in the Minneapolis suburb of Plymouth,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross. “We offer a progressive music education program that students and parents alike will love - fun and creative for the kids, but with a solid music foundation parents will value,” he continued. The school will serve students of all ages and skill levels living in Plymouth, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, and the greater Twin Cities Metro Area.

A dynamic and talented mother-son team, Judy and Jake Shoulak, head up the Plymouth school, bringing a high level of business and music experience to the venture.  Judy has over 30 years of experience in leading organizational operations and building high-performing teams.  Jake brings the musical acumen, having studied and performed extensively in the Minneapolis area and beyond, including receiving his degree in Audio Engineering from IPR.  “Opening a Bach to Rock music school is dream come true for both of us,” said Judy.  “We want to help kids that are interested in music to develop their skills here and have fun doing it,” she continued.  Jake is eager to help students collaborate and explore their passion for making music. “We can’t wait to get the doors officially opened and get the music started,” said Jake Shoulak.

With Bach to Rock, students learn to play today’s hits and jam with other kids from the start. It’s more of a group activity or team sport.  A Bach to Rock music education is synonymous with fun, cool and innovative as students learn together and from each other.  Students thrive as part of the creative and energetic vibe that comes from collectively making and learning music.

Bach to Rock Plymouth will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including: individual and group lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drums, DJ and more; music programs for preschoolers and toddlers; beginning piano for children in grades K-2; along with summer camps and birthday parties. Bach to Rock also offers MyB2R, an online dashboard offering customers real-time access to student progress and more. MyB2R is the only digital service of its kind in the music school industry, and provides the ability to track student advancement, schedule lessons, obtain homework and stream over 300 pre-recorded songs to practice at home.
