We have fun! That’s why unlike any other music school, B2R couples rigorous individual instruction with band “jam sessions,” making students motivated by playing in a group. Like sports, a band builds teamwork, develops social skills, fosters self-esteem, promotes peer recognition and leads to lasting friendships.
The B2R Method. In our music schools, we use an innovative approach to music instruction based on the belief that everyone learns faster playing the music they like, whether it’s rock or Bach, and the technical foundation is the same. Teachers at B2R use special age and skill appropriate arrangements to have students playing songs in no time. Students are motivated to learn when they see early results and have an exciting, achievable goal.
Lifelong skill. B2R gives kids an experience to last a lifetime! Musical skills lead to years of pleasure and fulfillment. Young people are enriched by their musical accomplishments for the rest of their lives. Some become professionals, but most achieve great satisfaction playing for their friends at social gatherings or performing together with their friends in bands that become a rewarding creative pastime.
We start them young! You’re never too young to play and create music. Introducing toddlers and very young children to music, rhythm and motion supports cognitive development, learning and motor skills. B2R Early Childhood classes combine structured musical games and activities to promote learning and musical growth and expose children to the fundamentals of music.
B2R is a system of music schools based on the belief that learning to play music should be fun. Students learn quickly when they play music they know and like. From Rock to Bach, B2R music schools build technique, foster teamwork and enhance self-esteem through private lessons, group instruction and public performances.

B2R Music Programs
We offer individual lessons in piano, drums, keyboard, guitar (acoustic and electric) and vocals. We also offer lessons in violin, brass and woodwind instruments (please check with your local B2R site to see what instruments are offered). The teachers in our music program are working professionals with extensive experience in teaching music at all levels. Students can take one-on-one or semi private music lessons.
In B2R group classes, students learn how to play their instrument in a stimulating team-based environment. The healthy camaraderie and competition that results motivates students to practice and improve quickly. Students receive a combination of individualized attention and group direction including ensemble playing. This approach leads to well-rounded musicianship, and prepares students to perform in a variety of ensembles/bands or as soloists.
B2R Rock Band Program
The special excitement about music training at Bach to Rock comes from students playing together in bands. Our professional band coaches work closely with students and direct and train the bands. At B2R, students are placed in compatible bands according to their age and ability. Bands are usually made up of four to six players and a vocalist (who may also be one of the band’s instrumentalists).
B2R Glee Club
Bach to Rock is proud to announce the B2R Glee Club! Inspired by the television sensation, this premier choral ensemble offers a dynamic atmosphere for male and female students to unlock their inner star! Each student will explore fun vocal exercises, singing in harmony, and cool choreography while performing arrangements of popular songs.
