Now, 3 years later, he is opening the Fulton school. “Every day, I continue to be impressed by the impact the Bach to Rock method of music education has on children and adults. The transformation is wonderful. I’m excited to help more people express their creativity through our fun and inventive music education programs,” said Patel.
Bach to Rock Fulton 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.
