Bach to Rock Franchise Continues Its Dynamic Growth

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today the signing of franchise development agreements to launch two new schools in the states of California and Maryland in early 2017.  The innovative music school brand is experiencing a burst of growth with 14 additional franchised locations slated to break ground in the next two years.          

The present development plans in California and Maryland include:

  • North County San Diego, California:   Husband and wife team Rick and Amy Walker are eager to tap into the strong musical tradition rooted in their family-oriented community.  Their backgrounds are well-suited for the venture.  Rick is an environmental, health and safety professional, as well as a part-time working musician in the band “Sometimes Julie,” which released its second CD in April, 2016.  Amy is an IT trainer and instructional designer, with a foundation in education.  “Owning a Back to Rock franchise is an opportunity to combine our respective interests to deliver a truly unique service. We aim to quickly become a valuable resource for people of all ages in our community,” said the couple.
  • Ellicott City, Maryland: Franchise investor Sameer Patel is a Bach to Rock grassroots success story.  Starting out as an involved parent with two children enrolled at the Bethesda, Maryland B2R school, he quickly progressed to become the franchise investor of the recently opened Bristow, Virginia school. Now he is opening his second location in the Baltimore-Washington suburb of Ellicott City. “I continue to be impressed by the impact our music education curriculum has on children and adults.  The transformation that happens and the joy that emanates from our students and their families is truly remarkable.  I’m excited to help more people express their creativity through our fun and inventive music instruction program,” said Patel. 
     

“Bach to Rock is enjoying one of our strongest years thanks to the confidence of existing franchise investors such as Sameer Patel, and the entrepreneurial spirit of new franchisees like Rick and Amy Walker,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock.  “Our proven business model and music education philosophy offers a winning proposition for business owners and aspiring music students of all ages,” Gross continued.

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, state-of-the-art recording studios, summer and winter camps, birthday parties and more.

Bach to Rock is expanding at a robust and steady pace.  The franchise has repeatedly been named to Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 and was listed in the Top Ten Trending Categories for 2016. Most recently, Bach to Rock won “Best of” Bethesda Magazine 2016 with first place in the Best Kids' Art or Music Classes category as the readers' pick. In 2014, Inc. Magazine named Bach to Rock one of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the third consecutive year.  Franchise Times has ranked it as one of the 500 Powerhouse Brands and on its Next 300 Franchise System list.

Bach to Rock is currently seeking qualified candidates to open franchise locations in markets across the country. Individuals seeking to own and operate a Bach to Rock should possess a minimum net worth of $500,000 and liquid assets of at least $100,000. While music experience or ability is not necessary, candidates should have a passion for music and be able to build a strong team of committed musicians to ensure the school’s success. Franchisees can expect their initial investment to range from approximately $370,000 to $522,500, including a $35,000 franchise fee.

Bethesda, MD – (July 18, 2016):  Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today that its second California location is now open in Rocklin. To celebrate B2R’s grand opening, the school will host an open house on Saturday, July 30 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 2311 Sunset Boulevard, Rocklin, California, 95765. The community is invited 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 into prize drawings and giveaways, check out the recording studio, meet the teachers, and more.

“I am confident that our newest Bach to Rock franchisees, Dr. and Mrs. Al Kahane and their son Robert, have the commitment and passion it takes to ensure their Rocklin school will thrive,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock.  “We are excited to bring Bach to Rock’s unique approach to music education to even more children in the Sacramento area through the addition of this second school. By allowing children to explore the kinds of music they love, and then play that music with other kids in a band and perform in a public space, the Kahanes will transform music education in the Rocklin area,” continued Gross.

Robert Kahane brings a unique perspective to the new business venture for his parents.  Robert is a musician and a member of a quartet with the owner of the Bach to Rock in Folsom, California. The couple couldn’t deny their son’s enthusiasm for the music program, nor the business success the Folsom location was experiencing.  “We are truly impressed with Bach to Rock’s innovative music education program. You can see how much students enjoy their customized lessons. We feel very confident in our decision to have our family join the Bach to Rock family,” said franchisee Dr. Kahane. 

Bach to Rock Rocklin will offer a variety of programs for both students of all ages, including individual lessons, group classes such as Rock Band, early childhood programs for children as young as two years old, summer camps and birthday parties. Studies have shown that learning to play music in a group helps students learn teamwork, develop social skills and build self-esteem, among other benefits.  The school will also feature Bach to Rock’s new Touch Screen Tablet Technology, which allows teachers to customize lessons; gives parents the ability to view their children’s progress and homework; and provides administrators with the necessary tools to ensure students are receiving a well-balanced music education.

Bach to Rock is expanding at a robust and steady pace.  The franchise has repeatedly been named to Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 and was listed in the Top Ten Trending Categories for 2016.

In addition, Washington Family Magazine named Bach to Rock to its “Best Music Instruction” list and readers of Northern Virginia Magazine voted the company as “Best Piano Instruction.”  Bach to Rock also was named the number one company to watch by the Washington Business Journal.

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.

Husband and wife team Wayne and Sue Chattaway are embarking on their venture as first-time entrepreneurs by tapping into their extensive backgrounds in the software and healthcare industries respectively.  They were motivated to get into the music school business by tuning into a need expressed by Wayne’s 11-year-old son, Noah.  “Noah loves to play guitar and he became passionate about the notion of attending a cool music school after watching a movie.

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today that its first Texas location has opened in Houston. To celebrate B2R’s grand opening, the school will host an open house on Saturday, April 23 from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. at 9079 Katy Freeway, Suite A, Houston, TX 77024. The community is invited to tour the school, schedule a free music lesson, learn about individual lessons and group classes, try out free toddler “Mommy and Me” classes, enter into prize drawings and giveaways, check out the recording studio, meet the teachers, and more.

“Bach to Rock is expanding at a robust and steady pace. I am confident the Memorial school will become a foothold in the Southwest as we continue to grow our presence nationwide,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. “Thanks to our dedicated new franchisees, Alex and Lynley Stern, of Ruby Capital, LLC, families in the Memorial area will enjoy our fun, progressive music curriculum that has proven to be successful with thousands of students of all ages.”

Bach to Rock Memorial 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, summer camps and birthday parties. Studies have shown that learning to play music in a group helps students learn teamwork, develop social skills and build self-esteem, among other benefits.  The school will also feature Bach to Rock’s new Touch Screen Tablet Technology, which allows teachers to customize lessons; gives parents the ability to view their children’s progress and homework; and provides administrators with the necessary tools to ensure students are receiving a well-balanced music education.

“Opening the first Bach to Rock school in Texas is an honor and a thrill,” said Alex Stern, Bach to Rock franchisee.  “My wife Lynley and I are both natives of the Houston area and the music lesson industry is underdeveloped here. Bach to Rock offers a fresh, interactive approach that is entirely student-driven, which is something we wished we had when we were growing up.  It is designed to nurture and grow each student’s distinct musical interests. We are hoping to revolutionize the music lesson business in Texas!”  Music lovers from an early age, Alex has always enjoyed mixing CD’s and singing in school plays, and Lynley has been a pianist since age six.  The duo plans to leverage their past experience in the education and internet marketing industries to the new venture.  They plan to open a second Bach to Rock in Texas in the next year.
