Bach to Rock, America’s music school for students of all ages, experienced strong growth in 2021 despite pandemic instabilities and is trending toward a robust 2022. The Bach to Rock system closed 2021 with system-wide revenue totaling over $22 million.
Bach to Rock’s outreach to students and families in 2021 is particularly noteworthy. The brand taught over 23,000 students throughout its network of forty-nine schools, which is an average of 480 students per school. Over 500,000 lessons were given, which is a 34 percent increase over 2020. Additional 2021 highlights include: the opening of five new franchised schools; pivoting to virtual learning since the start of the pandemic (now offering both in-person and online classes to meet families’ needs); and hosting its First Annual National Franchisee Conference.
Projections for 2022 feature plans to open ten new schools, with locations in Arizona, California, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas. In January 2022, Bach to Rock experienced a 42 percent increase in revenues versus January 2021, which is a positive indicator for future annual performance. Looking further into 2022 and beyond, Bach to Rock has development plans for an additional nine new schools.
“Our franchisees have demonstrated unparalleled persistence and resilience over the past year, and thanks to their efforts, Bach to Rock continues to be a financially sound business opportunity with exciting potential,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. “I am so proud of our performance in 2021. Reaching nearly 500 students per school is a testament to our innovative curriculum and how attractive it is to parents and students,” continued Gross. Bach to Rock anticipates a very strong and productive 2022 as it steadily increases its presence throughout the United States.
