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, proudly announces the opening of a new school in Plymouth, Minnesota.  The community is invited to the free grand opening festivities on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at 4345 Nathan Lane N., Plymouth, MN, 55442. Attendees are welcome 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 prize drawings and giveaways, and check out the recording studio. They can also enjoy performances by instructors and special guests such as Chris Hawkey, a KFAN DJ and musical artist, who will attend from 3 – 4 p.m.

“Bach to Rock is generating a lot of momentum as we open more schools across the country.  We are delighted to debut our first school in Minnesota in the Minneapolis suburb of Plymouth,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross. “We offer a progressive music education program that students and parents alike will love - fun and creative for the kids, but with a solid music foundation parents will value,” he continued. The school will serve students of all ages and skill levels living in Plymouth, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, and the greater Twin Cities Metro Area.

A dynamic and talented mother-son team, Judy and Jake Shoulak, head up the Plymouth school, bringing a high level of business and music experience to the venture.  Judy has over 30 years of experience in leading organizational operations and building high-performing teams.  Jake brings the musical acumen, having studied and performed extensively in the Minneapolis area and beyond, including receiving his degree in Audio Engineering from IPR.  “Opening a Bach to Rock music school is dream come true for both of us,” said Judy.  “We want to help kids that are interested in music to develop their skills here and have fun doing it,” she continued.  Jake is eager to help students collaborate and explore their passion for making music. “We can’t wait to get the doors officially opened and get the music started,” said Jake Shoulak.

With Bach to Rock, students learn to play today’s hits and jam with other kids from the start. It’s more of a group activity or team sport.  A Bach to Rock music education is synonymous with fun, cool and innovative as students learn together and from each other.  Students thrive as part of the creative and energetic vibe that comes from collectively making and learning music.

Bach to Rock Plymouth will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including: individual and group lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drums, DJ and more; music programs for preschoolers and toddlers; beginning piano for children in grades K-2; along with summer camps and birthday parties. Bach to Rock also offers MyB2R, an online dashboard offering customers real-time access to student progress and more. MyB2R is the only digital service of its kind in the music school industry, and provides the ability to track student advancement, schedule lessons, obtain homework and stream over 300 pre-recorded songs to practice at home.  

 

Changing the Way Students Learn Music

Bach to Rock is the music school kids would have designed for themselves.  They get to jam with other kids right away and play current hits. The learning is the same, but the enjoyment factor is much higher.
