Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today that its first Florida location is opening in Jacksonville Beach. To celebrate B2R’s grand opening, the school will host an open house on Saturday, June 4 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 2280 3rd St S, Jacksonville Beach, FL, 32250. 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.

“I am confident that our new Bach to Rock franchisees, Wayne and Sue Chattaway, will make a meaningful local impact with their Jacksonville Beach school,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock.  “They’ve got it all: enthusiasm, community commitment and a dedication to quality music education.”  Gross continued, “Families in Jacksonville Beach will be assured of a fun, progressive music curriculum that has proven to be successful with thousands of students of all ages.”

Husband and wife team Wayne and Sue Chattaway are embarking on their venture as first-time entrepreneurs by tapping into their extensive backgrounds in the software and healthcare industries respectively.  They were motivated to get into the music school business by tuning into a need expressed by Wayne’s 11-year-old son, Noah.  “Noah loves to play guitar and he became passionate about the notion of attending a cool music school after watching a movie. Investing in a Bach to Rock franchise was a wise business decision and at the same time, we could help Noah and other budding musicians in Jacksonville Beach,” said Wayne Chattaway.  “It’s exciting as business owners.  We are delivering a unique music education curriculum that is personalized for each student’s distinct interests.  It will be a joy to help kindle music inspiration and creativity in kids and adults.”   The couple plans to open a second Bach to Rock in Florida in the next year.

Bach to Rock Jacksonville Beach will offer a variety of programs for both students of all ages, including individual lessons, group classes such as Rock Band, early childhood programs for children as young as two years old, 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.

Meet New Bach to Rock Franchisee Mara Marerro

New Bach to Rock franchisee Mara Marerro is pleased to be opening her Bach to Rock school in her hometown.  Mara is an owner/operator and serves as the school’s director. She has more than 25 years of experience as an early childhood educator and has degrees in psychology and early childhood education. For the last 17 years, she has been the lead pre-K teacher at a local Montessori school.  “Opening a Bach to Rock school fulfills my entrepreneurial desire to start a business that provides a fun and creative educational environment for students.  And I felt it was important to help enrich and give back to our community,” said Mara.    With two teenage children, she understands parents’ concerns during this uncertain time. “We are adhering to all health and safety guidelines provided by state and federal agencies.  We want our students to be able to learn and have fun in a safe environment,” she continued. 

 

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. Students learn the intricacies of music — from theory to how to read 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.

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, has transitioned all of its forty-two schools nationwide to remote music lessons.

Currently, Bach to Rock has taught over 25,000 lessons online, connecting with over 5,000 students per week.

“It is our responsibility to protect our students and their families, our staff, and our communities during this incredibly challenging time. Virtual lessons are helping to maintain the learning, the camaraderie and the connections our students have with each other, and with their instructors,” said Brian Gross, President of Bach to Rock. “Remote lessons are an outlet for fun and creativity during a stressful situation and provide additional structure and familiarity for families and students,” continued Gross.

Over 300 families have shared positive feedback and have given high marks to their Bach to Rock schools about the transition. "Before he tried virtual band practice, my nine-year-old son insisted he didn't want to do it. After his first session, he said he LOVED it. We are totally committed now. Learning music is always more fun with friends! And in these times, virtual band practice is a quality way to spend time with his peers," Aiden's mom, Bach to Rock, McLean, Virginia.

“We appreciate all that everyone at Bach to Rock has done to continue to provide lessons in these crazy times. I think that the online lesson program is good for the students to have since everything else seems turned upside down right now,” Julian’s mom, Bach to Rock, Bethesda, Maryland.

“Taran’s lesson via Zoom was great. Thank you! Having a little connectivity to a ‘normal’ schedule was lovely. Thank you again for providing this service to your students,” Taran’s mom, Bach to Rock, Northbrook, Illinois.

Lessons are available to all students who have access to a device capable of video communication and an instrument with which to practice at their residence. Students are continuing voice lessons as well as their private lessons on all instruments. Bach to Rock continues its popular band lessons virtually, along with its “Rock City” music classes for preschoolers aged 3-5, and its “Kids n Keys” beginning piano classes for children aged 5-7 in grades K-2. Beat Refinery DJ lessons continue only at those schools which currently offer that option. Bach to Rock is also hosting customized events in response to parents’ requests, such as virtual birthday parties and Wednesday Workshops on special topics.

“Bach to Rock franchises have been greatly impacted by the lockdowns and owners swiftly adapted their schools to remote learning,” said Gross. “We know it’s critical to keep our communities connected and our relationships strong. Our franchisees are community leaders and we are proud of how they are responding to this crisis with such agility to meet families’ needs.”

Teachers are hosting lessons using Zoom, a free video conferencing service, integrated with the MyB2R portal, that is easily installed on an iPad, iPhone, or other mobile device and is compatible with both Windows and Mac.

In a fierce competition at the 2019 Bach to Rock Battle of the Bands, 36 bands went head-to-head at City Winery in New York City on Sunday, June 9.

Over 800 proud parents, family members and fans came to support and cheer on students from Bach to Rock Port Washington, Bach to Rock Mamaroneck and Bach to Rock Nanuet.

The groups performed in both the Main Space and The Loft at City Winery and rocked the iconic hotspot.

“The students, who range in age from 7 to 18, and their band coaches worked tirelessly for months to prepare for this tremendous event and I’m beyond proud of all the performers,” said Bach to Rock Port Washington Director Elana Hayden. “While this is a competition, the main point is for the kids to have a great experience, to get to perform in a top New York City venue – and to have fun and feel like a rock star!”

Six seasoned music industry professionals, Carolee Goodgold (Carly Simon), John Miller (Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton), Brandon “Taz” Niederauer (Lady Gaga, Dr. John), Cameron Rasmussen (Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway), Jason Reese (Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti) and Wayne Schuster (Blood, Sweat, and Tears) judged the performances.

Over 150 students performed on stages that have hosted Lou Reed, Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborne, Taj Mahal, Patti Smith, and Buster Poindexter to name a few.

The bands were scored on several criteria including musical ability, technical ability, stage presence, material, creativity, and professionalism. All the competitors study a variety of musical disciplines at Bach to Rock music school, including music theory, instrument instruction, recording arts, performance arts, voice lessons and band coaching.
