Bach To Rock Franchises Music Schools


BACH TO ROCK, THE owner of six music schools in Maryland and Virginia, has signed a franchise agreement with Amplified Capital Partners, LLC to open a chain of Bach to Rock schools in New York and Connecticut. The first location is slated to open in the fall of 2012.

“At Bach to Rock, we’ve experienced tremendous success serving the greater Washington D.C. area, and we are excited to expand our footprint in Connecticut and New York,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock.

Co-founded by a Juilliard-trained middle school teacher, Bach to Rock “transformed music instruction into a team sport” by coupling rigorous individual instruction with jam sessions that keep students motivated by playing in a group. In 2011, Inc. magazine cited Bach to Rock as one of the fastest growing private companies in America, and the Washington Business Journal named it the number one company to watch in 2012.

Bach to Rock is currently seeking candidates to open franchise locations in the Mid-Atlantic region, from New Jersey to North Carolina, and plans to broaden its efforts into markets across the country. Bach to Rock calls the effort “an opportunity for entrepreneurs to build a business that is dedicated to helping children, seniors and adults learn to play the music they love.” While music experience or ability is not necessary, franchisee candidates should be able to build a strong team of committed musicians to ensure the school’s success.
