America’s Music School Expands Access to Music Education in New York City Metro


Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today it will open two new schools in Syosset and Mamaroneck, N.Y., in September. The schools are owned by current B2R franchise group Amplified Capital Partners Holdings, LLC (ACPH) which opened its first location in Port Washington, N.Y., in 2012. ACPH was founded by entrepreneurs Glenn Fleischman and Alan Goodstadt to develop a chain of B2R schools in the New York metropolitan area and beyond. B2R will host open house celebrations at 103A Jackson Avenue in Syosset and at 130 Mamaroneck Avenue in Mamaroneck following the opening of each school. Families will be able to tour the schools, learn about individual lessons and group classes, check out the recording studios, meet the teachers, and more.

“As our first franchisees, Glenn and Alan have demonstrated a strong commitment to music education and the long term success of Bach to Rock,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. “Their dedication to the brand has been instrumental to our growth. We’re confident that they will continue to meet the growing demand for personalized and fun music instruction as schools continue to cut budgets for art programs and parents and students seek alternative ways to fill that missing piece in their education.”

Bach to Rock’s schools in Syosset and Mamaroneck will offer a variety of programs for both children and adults, including individual lessons, group classes such as Rock Band and early childhood programs for children as young as six months old. Additionally, both locations will offer a program for children with special needs that includes music therapy and adaptive music lessons. Led by a board-certified music therapist, the program aims to help children by using music to improve communication, social interaction and cognitive skills. With the addition of B2R Syosset and Mamaroneck, Bach to Rock will have 11 schools open and 15 franchised locations in development across the U.S.  Fleischman and Goodstadt have an additional three Bach to Rock schools planned to open over the next several years and are targeting additional locations in Nassau County and Westchester County, N.Y., as well as in Fairfield County, Conn.

“After opening our first Bach to Rock location nearly two years ago and experiencing strong enrollment and success, we are thrilled to expand to Syosset and Mamaroneck, where there is a huge demand for what we offer,” said Glenn Fleischman, Managing Partner of ACPH and franchisee of B2R. “With the three additional schools we have planned in the next few years, we look forward to expanding B2R’s presence and bringing its programs to more students in the New York metro area.”

In 2014, Washington Family Magazine named Bach to Rock to its “Best for Families” list and readers of Northern Virginia Magazine voted the company as one of the “Best of NoVa.” In 2013, Inc. magazine named Bach to Rock one of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the third consecutive year and Franchise Times ranked the company on its Next 300 Franchise Systems list. The Washington Business Journal has also named Bach to Rock the number one company to watch.

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.
