Bach to Rock is Providing Much-needed Stop Gap Measures to Fill Children’s Summers with Meaning and Hope

Bach to Rock is Providing Much-needed Stop Gap Measures to Fill Children’s Summers with Meaning and Hope

WHAT:   Bach to Rock Music School, along with other businesses in the D.C. Metro Region, are now offering virtual summer camps to help families fill the void.  With Bach to Rock, children can learn to play guitar, piano, ukulele, or drums and also learn to sing during daily sessions for week-long intervals. Options are also available for music production and songwriting. 

WHY: Hundreds of county camp programs will not operate this summer, leaving many families with limited options to help fill their children’s summer days. Private companies are working to fill this gap with online camp offerings. Online camps can provide children with safe, creative and fun outlets to continue learning and enjoy the summer. 

WHEN:  Effective immediately, Bach to Rock is offering 45-minute to 90-minute sessions each day for a week for the entire summer. Scheduling is based on school location.

WHERE: Bach to Rock is offering virtual summer camps, including mini-camps for children aged 5 and up, at all of its Northern Virginia and Maryland locations.  

 

MORE:  Bach to Rock will also offer small cohort group-based camps once appropriate re-opening phases are announced.  In-person camps will follow Centers for Disease Control and American Camp Association Guidelines pertaining to wearing masks, disinfecting, social distancing, small cohort groupings, and limits on capacity.

In a fierce competition at the 2019 Bach to Rock Battle of the Bands, 36 bands went head-to-head at City Winery in New York City on Sunday, June 9.

Over 800 proud parents, family members and fans came to support and cheer on students from Bach to Rock Port Washington, Bach to Rock Mamaroneck and Bach to Rock Nanuet.

The groups performed in both the Main Space and The Loft at City Winery and rocked the iconic hotspot.

“The students, who range in age from 7 to 18, and their band coaches worked tirelessly for months to prepare for this tremendous event and I’m beyond proud of all the performers,” said Bach to Rock Port Washington Director Elana Hayden. “While this is a competition, the main point is for the kids to have a great experience, to get to perform in a top New York City venue – and to have fun and feel like a rock star!”

Six seasoned music industry professionals, Carolee Goodgold (Carly Simon), John Miller (Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton), Brandon “Taz” Niederauer (Lady Gaga, Dr. John), Cameron Rasmussen (Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway), Jason Reese (Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti) and Wayne Schuster (Blood, Sweat, and Tears) judged the performances.

Over 150 students performed on stages that have hosted Lou Reed, Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborne, Taj Mahal, Patti Smith, and Buster Poindexter to name a few.

The bands were scored on several criteria including musical ability, technical ability, stage presence, material, creativity, and professionalism. All the competitors study a variety of musical disciplines at Bach to Rock music school, including music theory, instrument instruction, recording arts, performance arts, voice lessons and band coaching.

This is our student of the month: Indica! She has been playing piano for one year now! When she isn't playing music, she enjoys biking and disc golf. A fun fact about Indica is that her name means "night star princess protected by wolves". Her favorite thing about being a part of Bach to Rock is singing with her band Purple Nightmare, as well as playing piano with her mom who also takes lessons here. Congrats Indica!
