Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today it has signed a franchise agreement to open its first locations in Colorado. Arpeggio Capital Partners LLC will develop 10 schools in Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs, with the first location targeted to open in Fall 2014 in the Denver metro area. Bach to Rock will offer a variety of programs for both children and adults, including individual lessons, group classes such as Rock Band, early childhood programs for children as young as six months old, and summer camps. To date, Bach to Rock has eight schools open and 18 franchised locations in development across the U.S.

“Our new partnership with Arpeggio Capital Partners LLC marks Bach to Rock’s largest development agreement to date and will more than double our current number of schools open,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. “Like many other communities in the U.S., schools across Colorado are experiencing increasingly tight budgets and music and arts programs are being cut. Bach to Rock will help fill the void with our progressive curriculum that teaches students to play music they really enjoy.”

Franchisees Brian McGrath and Neil Fitzgerald of Arpeggio Capital Partners LLC both spent more than 20 years working in the financial industry before deciding to open their first franchise.

“As current and life-long music students, we saw an opportunity to bring Bach to Rock’s superior and innovative music instruction to students of all ages. The curriculum appeals to a wide range of musical tastes and interests, which suits the diverse population of the communities in and around Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs,” said McGrath. “Bach to Rock will also give us a meaningful way to connect with local residents as we become a central part of each community’s music scene through public performances, philanthropic work and more.”

In 2013, Inc. magazine named Bach to Rock one of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the third consecutive year and Franchise Times ranked the company on its Next 300 Franchise Systems list. The Washington Business Journal has also named Bach to Rock the number one company to watch and Washington Family Magazine readers have voted it Best Music Instruction winner.

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. While music experience or ability is not necessary, candidates should bring strong business acumen and the ability to build teams to ensure the school’s success.
