Bach to Rock

Online Option Proves to be Beneficial for Students Nationwide

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announces it has taught over 100,000 virtual music lessons to over 6,500 children across the United States since March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced families to stay at home and curtail academic and enrichment activities. To accommodate families, in less than two weeks, Bach to Rock transitioned all of its forty-four music schools from in-person lessons to virtual lessons: first for private music instruction; followed by group instruction; then early education programs; followed by birthday parties and summer camps.

“Now, more than six months since the pandemic started, we are proud we have been able teach over 100,000 lessons virtually,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross. “The pandemic forced us to rethink how we do business.  Parents were eager for normalcy, fun and camaraderie for their children, and we wanted to support them during the crisis by continuing music lessons,” stated Gross. The same spirit and bonding that comes with Bach to Rock in-person instruction successfully bridged to virtual lessons.   Parent reviews show high ratings for Bach to Rock’s quick response to the COVID-19 pandemic, their professionalism and dedication to keeping students engaged in remote lessons.

As states have re-opened, Bach to Rock is providing families a hybrid model of education, offering in-person, virtual lessons, or a combination of both. The new Bach to Rock model offers families a variety of options and flexibility. “No matter how we teach, Bach to Rock promises that the old days of dreary and lonely music lessons are gone.  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 Gross.

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.

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.
