Bach to Rock Music School Comes to Bristow Commons

Bach to Rock Music School Comes to Bristow Commons

Included with the new stores coming to Bristow Commons on Devlin Road will be a Bach to Rock. Bach to Rock is a music school that subscribes to the philosophy that students learn best when they join together to play the music they most enjoy.

According to Bach to Rock President, Brian Gross, the Bristow location is just one of two new Bach to Rocks coming to the Northern Virginia area.

“Bach to Rock has been a part of the Washington, D.C. area since our first school opened in 2007, and we have been thrilled by the positive responses from parents and students to our variety of music programs,” said Gross. “There is a demand in the region for what Bach to Rock offers. With music and arts programs continuing to be cut due to diminishing school budgets, Bach to Rock helps meet the increased need for high-quality music education.”

Sameer Patel, owner of the Bristow franchise and investor in Bristow Commons, said he was motivated to buy the music franchise after seeing his young children interact in the program.

“Having my kids go through it, I’m really seeing that it works,” Patel said.

The Bach to Rock system starts children learning music much earlier than other music schools. They will work with babies through adults, using innovative techniques that are fun and challenging and allow students to play their favorite kinds of music. Their system also works differently than traditional music lessons because the Bach to Rock program is designed to be high interest, working with children on the level they can process, but which is also challenging to them.

“It is a much more natural precursor to music lessons than just jumping into piano lessons,” said Patel. “There is a much higher likelihood that the kids would stick with it.”

Bach to Rock starts with infants, introducing them to rhythm, motion and honing their fine motor skills in a way that seems like play. However, Patel’s children started with “Rock City” classes for 3 to 5-year-olds. He explained that at this age the B2R instructors teach them how to pick up instruments like guitars, drums and the piano and begin playing.

“There are some Suzuki elements, but also more traditional site reading,” Patel said.

And unlike most young-children programs, these children participate in group lessons, which can be more fun and less intimidating.

But Bach to Rock is not only for the very young. It continues when the students are teenagers and adults, allowing their students to play music they love, participate in jam sessions, and like sports, emphasizing teamwork.

Plus B2R creates an environment that students can relate to, because they are immersed in the experience of being a rock performer.

“We found that the Bach to Rock teachers have this edgy ability to relate to kids. They play in bands themselves,” Patel said.

Additionally, 7 to 18-year-old students are eligible to take private lesson to improve upon their skill. After 11-years-old, they can also play with a band.

“The teachers have specialties but also have ancillary experience,” basically the knowledge to advise students on becoming professional musicians, should they decide to follow that path.

The center will also include a recording studio available for rent and will encourage students to play concerts and battles of the band.

Patel thinks while teenagers will want to be involve in rock music, parents should see the value in starting their children early in music lessons.

“[I see music as] the intersection between math and art, because there’s a technical aspect to it, and then there’s an aesthetic to it. They have to hone both sides of their brains.”

He also encourages adults to come in for lessons and join a band as well.

He said at his children’s Bach to Rock school in Bethesda, Maryland, he sees many parents also taking music lessons. Parents bring their children and then realize that instead of sitting in the lobby, they can be taking lessons in an instrument they have always wanted to learn to play. Patel believes with the new music school in Bristow, rock resurgence will spread throughout the community, leading to the forming of new bands.

He also said that Bach to Rock is exactly the kind of vibrant, community-centered store he wants to bring into Bristow Commons, where he hopes people will be excited by the stores, restaurants and neighborhood conveniences that will enrich their community.

Regionally, Bach to Rock is also excited about the expansion into western Prince William County.

“We look forward to growing our presence in Northern Virginia and offering our fun, progressive curriculum to even more families in Bristow,” Gross said.

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today that its first Connecticut school is now open in Ridgefield.  To celebrate Bach to Rock’s grand opening, the school will host an open house on Saturday, September 24 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 15 Danbury Road, Suite 5 (Girolametti Plaza), Ridgefield, Connecticut, 06877. 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.

“The new Bach to Rock in Ridgefield is certain to become a community hub not only in Ridgefield, Danbury, Wilton and Redding, but also in nearby North and South Salem, Lewisboro and Pound Ridge. Carl Giangrasso, our new franchisee heading the school, is very dedicated.  His enthusiasm is certain to resonate with customers,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.  “The new teaching team is very talented, and covers all music genres.  And that synchs up with the B2R method, which encourages students to explore the kinds of music they love, and then play that music with other students in a band and perform in a public space,” Gross said.

“We jumped right into launch mode before construction on the school even started. We have been out in the community participating in events such as the Ridgefield Kid’s Fest, SummerFest and other local activities,” said franchisee Carl Giangrasso. “It’s very gratifying to know we will be helping musicians and aspiring musicians of all ages to express their musical creativity,” Giangrasso said.

Bach to Rock Ridgefield will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages, including individual lessons, group classes such as DJ lessons, Rock Band, early childhood programs for children as young as toddler and preschool age, 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. 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. 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. While music experience or ability is not necessary, candidates should bring strong business acumen and the ability to build teams to ensure the school’s success.
