Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, proudly announces the opening of a new school in Arlington Heights, Illinois.  Families in Arlington Heights are invited to learn all about Bach to Rock at the school’s free grand opening on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 65 W. Rand Road, Arlington Heights, IL 60004. Attendees can tour the school, enjoy a free music lesson, learn about individual lessons and group classes, try out free toddler “Mommy and Me” classes, enter prize drawings and giveaways, check out the recording studio, and enjoy performances by instructors.  This location marks Bach to Rock’s third school in Illinois, and its 40th in the country.  The Arlington Heights school will serve students from Arlington Heights, Rolling Meadows, Palatine, Wheeling, Buffalo Grove, Prospect Heights, Mt. Prospect and Elk Grove Village.

An exciting feature of this new location is the Beat Refinery DJ School, which offers MixingScratching and Music Production classes for students of all ages. Over the past decade, DJ culture has emerged from a mostly underground activity to become a worldwide phenomenon impacting virtually every music genre. Now, students at Bach to Rock Arlington Heights can learn the tricks of the trade to take advantage this growing trend. Students can enjoy private or group lessons and the studio is available for parties and camps. 

Nationwide, Bach to Rock has instructed over 55,000 aspiring musicians since opening its first school in 2007.  The brand delivers a twist on traditional music lessons, offering something that’s akin to team sports with a spirit of creativity and fun to inspire students. “With Bach to Rock, gone are the days of boring and solitary music lessons.  Students learn to play today’s hits and jam with other kids from the start. You’ll see students paired up in groups and teams to help ignite the musical energy,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.

Bach to Rock Arlington Heights will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including: individual and group lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drums and more; “Rock City” for preschoolers and “Rock n Roll” for toddlers; beginning piano “Kids n Keys” for children in grades K-2; and summer camps and birthday parties. Bach to Rock also offers MyB2R, an online dashboard offering customers real-time access to student progress and more. MyB2R provides the ability to track student advancement, schedule lessons, obtain homework and stream over 300 pre-recorded songs to practice at home.  

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.

Meet New Bach to Rock Franchisee Ashwin Kotian

New Bach to Rock franchisee Ashwin Kotian is pleased to be opening the first Bach to Rock school in the Austin area.  He is an entrepreneur with a background in technology and 20+ years of expertise in strategy, product development, marketing and operations. His musical journey has evolved since the early 2000s, when he was a thrash metal drummer in the San Francisco Bay area, to today as a performing DJ in Austin.

Bach to Rock Music School Helps Enrich Children’s Summers with Music

Bach to Rock Music School Helps Enrich Children’s Summers with Music

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, is now offering both virtual and in-person summer camps at the majority of its forty-three schools across the United States. Parents will have the option to choose their preferred format. Some schools remain closed for in-person camps, however virtual camps are available.  In March, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bach to Rock transitioned all of its schools to remote-only music lessons, but now is able to shift to a combination of online and in-person summer camps as stay-at-home restrictions are lifted by individual states.  Bach to Rock customer surveys indicate that parents want to fill their children’s days with enriching and fun activities, and continuation of music lessons and camps is a priority.   

“The summer is a wonderful opportunity for kids to learn how to play a new instrument, form a band, take voice lessons and make positive memories along the way. Summer camps provide a much-needed creative outlet for children, and with thousands of traditional camps unable to operate this year, kids need some joy now more than ever. Bach to Rock is proud that we’ve been able to adapt to help families during this incredibly challenging time,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock.  Since the addition of virtual learning, Bach to Rock instructors have taught over 70,000 lessons. Parent reviews show extremely high ratings for Bach to Rock’s quick response to the COVID-19 pandemic, their professionalism, and dedication keeping students enjoying and engaged in lessons. 

At Bach to Rock summer camps, children can learn to play guitar, piano, ukulele, or drums and also learn to sing, during daily 45-minute to 90-minute sessions for week-long intervals. Options are also available for music production and songwriting.  Bach to Rock is offering small cohort group-based camps once appropriate re-opening phases are announced in each state.   In-person camps will follow Centers for Disease Control and American Camp Association Guidelines pertaining to wearing masks, disinfecting, social distancing, small cohort groupings, and limits on capacity.  Scheduling is based on school location.

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.
