3 weeks ago

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announces it has launched MyB2R, the only digital service of its kind in the music school industry. MyB2R is an online information hub that extends learning beyond a single weekly lesson. From teacher assignments and student progress reports, to music libraries and lesson schedules, parents and students have the tools to understand teaching methods, monitor student goals and progress, and enhance the learning experience for each student.

“Bach to Rock is the only music school that offers an online, real-time information hub for facilitating improved communication between parents, teachers and students. With MyB2R, a detailed, live dashboard is at your fingertips now,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross. “We are very proud to offer this groundbreaking benefit to our customers.”  Bach to Rock provides a fun, engaging methodology to encourage continued advancement through the learning process, and MyB2R makes the methodology more readily accessible, understandable and attainable for students, their teachers and parents.

MyB2R enables students and parents to monitor a student’s musical learning advancement from beginner to expert. It features a highly visual format, featuring assignments, level progress, methodology and the music library. MyB2R provides benefits to students, parents and teachers alike:

  • Documents the individual skills each student is learning and mastering with each concept and assignment
  • Provides updates on curriculum progress and homework assignments and completion
  • Offers access to a music player library of 300+ multi-tracked and customized recordings of songs by instrument, for students of all levels to accompany
  • Shares insights into how each student is learning music – reading, writing, ear-training, playing by reading, playing by ear, improvisation and repertoire
  • Enables teachers to quickly update and monitor each student’s progress in the Bach to Rock curriculum and further assist in student development

 

“We hope MyB2R empowers students and parents because it answers the most common question we hear, ‘How is my student doing?’” said Bach to Rock Director of Curriculum and Training, Aaron Schmidt. With MyB2R, a student or parent can log in and see exactly how the student is progressing – what concepts have been mastered and what concepts are still to be learned. “Plus, an exciting feature is the music player library.  It makes practicing at home a lot more fun, which in turn propels a student to advance faster,” Schmidt said. Arrangements are simplified and customized by instrument, and by advancement level, so students can login and find their practice songs quickly and easily.

MyB2R is quick and easy to use, the dashboard provides an immediate update, and it complements personal feedback from teachers.  I can jump online any time and confidently know how my child is progressing in the curriculum,” said Toni K. Nelson, a parent from the Bach to Rock school in Herndon, Virginia.

Current Bach to Rock customers can access MyB2R with their dedicated, confidential login information at www.myb2r.com.
