We're dedicated to nurturing the education and talent of all students and budding musicians across America."

Geared Up will take place at The Fillmore Silver Spring located at 8656 Colesville Road. Additional sponsors of the event include The Fillmore Silver Spring, Leaders Institute, Montgomery County Public Schools and Avatar Salon. The following Battle of the Band-winning B2R students will be performing:

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.

The present development plans in California and Maryland include:

  • North County San Diego, California:   Husband and wife team Rick and Amy Walker are eager to tap into the strong musical tradition rooted in their family-oriented community.  Their backgrounds are well-suited for the venture.  Rick is an environmental, health and safety professional, as well as a part-time working musician in the band “Sometimes Julie,” which released its second CD in April, 2016.  Amy is an IT trainer and instructional designer, with a foundation in education.  “Owning a Back to Rock franchise is an opportunity to combine our respective interests to deliver a truly unique service. We aim to quickly become a valuable resource for people of all ages in our community,” said the couple.
  • Ellicott City, Maryland: Franchise investor Sameer Patel is a Bach to Rock grassroots success story.  Starting out as an involved parent with two children enrolled at the Bethesda, Maryland B2R school, he quickly progressed to become the franchise investor of the recently opened Bristow, Virginia school. Now he is opening his second location in the Baltimore-Washington suburb of Ellicott City. “I continue to be impressed by the impact our music education curriculum has on children and adults.  The transformation that happens and the joy that emanates from our students and their families is truly remarkable.  I’m excited to help more people express their creativity through our fun and inventive music instruction program,” said Patel. 
     

“Bach to Rock is enjoying one of our strongest years thanks to the confidence of existing franchise investors such as Sameer Patel, and the entrepreneurial spirit of new franchisees like Rick and Amy Walker,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock.  “Our proven business model and music education philosophy offers a winning proposition for business owners and aspiring music students of all ages,” Gross continued.

Bach to Rock franchisees are provided with an array of tools to position them for success, including extensive hands-on training, marketing and public relations support and a proprietary web-based management system, along with demonstrated techniques for business growth.  Franchisees also benefit from multiple revenue streams such as individual and group classes, early childhood education programs, state-of-the-art recording studios, summer and winter camps, birthday parties and more.
