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.

Tampa’s New Bach to Rock Music School Delivers a Fresh Take on Music Lessons

Tampa’s New Bach to Rock Music School Delivers a Fresh Take on Music Lessons

10/22/2018 12:00:00 AM EDT
3 weeks ago

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, proudly announces the opening of its newest school in Tampa, Florida. The community is invited to the free grand opening event on Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 17463 N. Dale Mabry Highway, Lutz, Florida, 33548 in the Van Dyke Commons shopping plaza.  Attendees are invited to tour the school, which pays tribute to Florida bands and musicians, take a free music lesson, enter prize drawings and giveaways, and enjoy live performances.  A wide assortment of music memorabilia will adorn the school’s hallways and walls, including references to Matchbox 20, NSync, Tom Petty and Lynyrd Skynyrd — who each debuted in Florida.

Tampa resident Rick Schmidt is the new franchise owner of the school. As a music and radio executive for over 20 years, he is tapping into his background to offer families a meaningful and valuable music education experience for their kids. “Having a hands-on franchise owner with Rick Schmidt’s experience adds a certain cachet. His roots in the radio and music industry are deep. He knows how to help musicians grow and evolve their talents,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.  Schmidt’s career includes programming Tampa’s 98Rock and some of the nation’s largest rock radio stations, signing recording artists to music labels and marketing large events and venues.  As a radio program director, Schmidt helped launch the careers of Florida bands Sister Hazel, Creed and Shinedown.

Schmidt has also represented various artists that have collectively: sold over 1.5 million albums; scored four top-15 rock hits; received video play on MTV; had music featured in video games, and even had one artist provide the walk-up song for former Tampa Bay Rays baseball all-star, Evan Longoria.

“Owning a Bach to Rock school is a high point in my career. I’m able to give back to our community and help inspire a new generation of musicians with our progressive music education program,” said Schmidt.   Bach to Rock dials in to what’s hot in music to appeal to students and cultivates their talents from there.  “We teach the basics and music theory, but we make it relatable, which helps foster learning,” continued Schmidt.  Bach to

to Rock provides instruction in a variety of music genres like alternative, country, pop, rock, jazz and EDM.

 

Changing the Way Students Learn Music 

Bach to Rock is reshaping music education on a national scale by turning solitary, boring music lessons into a group activity that is more like a team sport.  B2R focuses on providing a well-balanced music education because, ultimately, that is what parents are looking for.

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. 

Bach to Rock Lutz will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including: individual and group lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drum, 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.
