As recent transplants from Maryland to San Diego, new Bach to Rock franchisees Mengjia Chen and her husband Lee opened their B2R school in 2020, just one month before pandemic lockdowns took hold.  Starting a new business is challenging even in the best of times, but the pandemic greatly impacted their fledgling school.  Fortunately, they were able to gain traction quickly through offering students online lessons.  Mengjia runs the business, and she has remained steadfast and committed to working hard since in-person classes resumed, and now, the school is poised for continued growth.  Both Mengjia and Lee are music lovers. Mengjia studied piano for many years, and Lee is a self-taught guitarist and drummer.  The couple has three young sons and are happy they will grow up in a fun, music-filled environment.  Mengjia and Lee met at the University of Maryland, where Mengjia earned her Master of Accounting and Lee completed his PhD in Pharmaceutical Science.

Why did you choose to open a Bach to Rock school?  And how did you hear about B2R?

We had Bach to Rock on our radar for nearly three years before opening. Following our cross-country relocation, we realized the time was right to bring our dream of owning a music school to life.  Our family has always loved music, and we wanted our kids to grow up in a fun, musical environment.  We didn’t want to force them to practice and now we don’t have to, since it’s so much fun learning at B2R! We worked with a franchise colleague who recommended B2R as the perfect fit.

How long has your school been open? 

Since February 2020, right before the lockdown.

In a fierce competition at the 2022 Bach To Rock Battle of the Bands, 20 bands went head-to-head at 89 North Music Venue in Patchogue, NY on Sunday, June 12th. Hundreds of proud parents, family members and fans came to support and cheer on students from B2R Port Washington. The groups competed at the iconic Long Island venue and rocked the spectacular hotspot.

"The students, who range in age from 8 to 18, and their band coaches worked tirelessly to prepare for this epic, annual event and I’m beyond proud of all the performers," said B2R Port Washington Director, Elana Hayden. “After the past two years with virtually no live performances, we were excited and beyond grateful for the opportunity to perform for a live audience at the fabulous 89 North."

Three seasoned music industry professionals, Wayne Schuster (Blood, Sweat and Tears, Phoebe Snow), Amber Ferrari (Paula Cole, Taylor Dayne), and Carl Pfanstiehl (original B2R Director of Operations) judged the performances. Close to 100 students performed in three divisions - Elementary, Middle, and High School – all rocking 89 North. "While this is a competition, the main point is for the kids to have a great experience, get to perform live - and to have fun and feel like a rock star!” said Elana.

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 on Port Washington Blvd, including music theory, instrument instruction, recording arts, performance arts, voice lessons and band coaching.

The winners included:
