Bach to Rock Music School Franchise Expands to Boston Suburbs

Music school franchise recently featured on NBC’s ‘The Voice’ answers much-needed demand for music education

The nation’s leading music school franchise soon will arrive in Boston — the latest major American city to land a location. Music lover Don Kennel will open a Bach to Rock franchise in suburban Boston.

Since our founding in 2007, we have been expanding our music school franchises throughout the country as schools have cut funding for music education. Bach to Rock also gained recognition when one of our instructors, Matt McAndrew, finished second on NBC’s hit show “The Voice.”

Don Kennel plans to open his Bach to Rock franchise in Boston this fall, and then he hopes to expand into other parts of the Northeast.

“We are excited to expand in Boston,” said Brian Gross, CEO of Bach to Rock. “Music is a bigger part of our culture today than it’s ever been, and record numbers of people are seeking out music education. At the same time, schools are cutting music programs due to tight budgets. Our new Boston location is going to fulfill a large demand.”

Bach to Rock is a franchised music education school for students of all ages, from early childhood through high school and beyond, with a unique twist. Not only do we provide individual music lessons, but we turn music into a “team sport” by creating student bands that learn to play sets, record music in a studio and perform in public. We offer students exposure to all forms of music — Top 40, classical, hip-hop, blues, country, gospel, jazz, a cappella, bluegrass, electronica and more.

Don, owner of Syncopated Holdings LLC, is a lifelong music aficionado with a passion for music education.

“The Bach to Rock music school franchise is so important for our neophyte musicians,” Don says. “With so many people being exposed to learning from Master Google, they are missing the fundamentals of the instruments, music theory and the ability to read music. This school provides a high-energy music center for the community where young and old alike can meet others and create.”

He loves the energy music creates for those who perform it and believes that Boston, with its long tradition of music, is a perfect fit for the Bach to Rock music school franchise.

“Boston is an amazing center for all genre of music, with its many world-class colleges and music schools,” Don says. “The residents of the surrounding towns understand the significance of music education. When you add to the excellent talent available to teach, along with the secret sauce of the Bach to Rock curriculum and style, it is sure to be a success.”

Don says that once he gets established with his first Boston-area franchise, he would like to open more of our schools in Boston, in New Hampshire and in the Portland, Maine, area.

“Bach to Rock is picking up momentum as we expand nationally,” says Brian, our CEO. “Currently nobody offers music education like we do. We expect it to be a huge success in the Boston market.”
