New music school opens in Folsom


Bach to Rock, America’s music school for students of all ages, hosted a grand opening and open house on Saturday at 82 Clarksville Road, Suite 100. “We saw a demand in Folsom and across Sacramento County for high-quality music education, especially with the growing number of students affected by budget cuts in the state of California that eliminated many music and arts programs,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. “Studies have shown that learning to play music in a group helps students learn teamwork, develop social skills and build self esteem, among other benefits. Every student should have the opportunity to be exposed to music education, so we are excited to introduce our fun, progressive curriculum to families in Folsom.”

Bach to Rock Folsom offers 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. With the addition of B2R Folsom, Bach to Rock will have nine schools open and 17 franchised locations in development across the U.S.

“We’re thrilled to open the first Bach to Rock on the West Coast and introduce our innovative music instruction to the Folsom community,” said Melissa Bartell, Site Director of B2R Folsom. “We think students will love the variety of programs we offer and will enjoy receiving personalized instruction based on their skill level, so we can make learning music fun. We look forward to sharing the gift of music with families for many years to come.”
