Bach to Rock to Open First West Coast School in Folsom, Calif.

<p><a href=Bach to Rock (B2R), America's music school for students of all ages, announced today its first West Coast school will open in Folsom, Calif., in Summer 2014. Located at 82 Clarksville Road, the new location will offer a variety of programs for both children and adults, including individual lessons, group classes such as Rock Band, early childhood programs for children as young as six months old, and summer camps. To date, Bach to Rock has eight schools open and eight franchised locations in development across the U.S.

"Opening the first Bach to Rock on the West Coast is a major milestone for the brand. We are excited to partner with Syncopated Partners LLC to expand our presence and help fill the demand for high-quality music education that allows students to learn by playing music they enjoy," said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. "The East Bidwell Street corridor in Folsom is an ideal location for the school because of the demographics of the surrounding communities, especially the large population of children. We look forward to introducing the Sacramento area to our fun, progressive curriculum."
