The new Bach to Rock model offers families a variety of options and flexibility,” Gross continued.

Meet Bach to Rock Multi-School Franchisee Sameer Patel

At the helm of the Fairfax school is Bach to Rock franchisee Sameer Patel, a Bach to Rock grassroots success story.  He first became aware of Bach to Rock when he enrolled his two children at the Bethesda, Maryland school. Noting its success and popularity, he began considering opportunities to become a franchisee, ultimately deciding to become a franchise investor of the Bristow, Virginia school.  Then three years later in 2018, he opened his second school in Fulton, Maryland.  Now, he is thrilled to be opening his third school. “The Bach to Rock method of music education has an amazing impact on children and adults.  The transformation is wonderful.  I’m excited to help people in the Fairfax area express their creativity through our fun and inventive music education programs,” said Patel.

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.
