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 Music School Celebrates 10 Years of Transforming Music Education

Bach to Rock Music School Celebrates 10 Years of Transforming Music Education

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, is marking its 10th anniversary with the opening of a new school on October 21, in Northbrook, Illinois, a northern Chicago suburb. Join us from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 1141 Church Street, Northbrook, IL 60062, for a fun-filled musical celebration. The grand opening will showcase the specialties of Bach to Rock since its inception in 2007 – teaching students of all ages to play the music they love in a fun, nurturing, team-oriented and supportive environment.

Bach to Rock opened its first corporate school in 2007 and that Bethesda, Maryland location continues to thrive today. Bach to Rock was built on the novel idea of teaching kids popular music – tunes they could relate to and would want to learn. “With Bach to Rock, the days of solitary, boring music lessons are over. We scrap what kids hate about music classes, incorporate more of what they want, and team kids up immediately,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross. “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,” continued Gross. The learning is the same, but the enjoyment factor is much higher.

Bach to Rock by the Numbers

In just ten years, Bach to Rock has grown into a respected and profitable franchise opportunity, with top industry rankings noted by Franchise Times, Entrepreneur and Business Week. Bach to Rock’s expansion has been robust and steady. The brand has grown from 6 corporate schools in 2012 to 30 corporate and franchised schools in 21 states by the end of 2017. Nineteen of those schools are in eight Top Ten markets, ranked by population. “We are very proud to say that we’ve reached over 35,000 children and families with our innovative approach to music instruction,” said Gross.

“A Bach to Rock franchise is a solid business opportunity for someone who is entrepreneurial, motivated and eager to help revamp music education. There is such a great need in the marketplace. Our brand has taken off because we are sustainable, profitable and we start up quickly,” continued Gross.

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. “Parents obviously want their child to have fun and create a relationship with their teacher, but at the end of the day they need to be learning something. Unlike other music school franchises, Bach to Rock has an extensive curriculum. Our students learn the intricacies of music — from theory to how to read music,” said Aaron Schmidt, B2R director of curriculum.

Recently, Bach to Rock launched 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.
