Community Invited to Grand Opening Party on June 25, 2017

Bach to Rock Encinitas CABach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today it is opening a new school in Encinitas, California.   The community is invited to the free grand opening festivities on Sunday, June 25, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at 282 N. El Camino Real, Suite C, Encinitas, California, 92024. Attendees are welcome to tour the school, enjoy a free music lesson, learn about individual lessons and group classes, try out free toddler “Mommy and Me” classes, take a spin at becoming a DJ, enter into prize drawings and giveaways, check out the recording studio, and meet the teachers.

“We are thrilled to be opening our first Bach to Rock school in Southern California.  Our innovative approach to music lessons is a perfect fit for families in Encinitas and the communities of Carlsbad, Solana Beach, Del Mar, San Marcos and Rancho Santa Fe,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.  Bach to Rock was founded on the premise that learning how to play music should be fun. And it’s proven that students learn best when they play music they love. “At Bach to Rock, students launch into learning popular favorites while our teachers expertly nurture their potential and share the fundamentals of music as they progress,” said Gross.

New Bach to Rock franchisees Amy and Rick Walker are the proud owners of the school. “We are very motivated to ensure our school becomes a valuable resource for aspiring musicians of all ages to cultivate their talents,” said the couple.  The duo brings an ideal combination of skills to the venture.  Rick is an environmental, health and safety professional, as well as a part-time working musician in the band “Sometimes Julie,” which released its second CD last year.  Amy is an IT trainer and instructional designer, with a foundation in education.  “Owning a Back to Rock franchise is an opportunity to blend our interests to deliver a unique service to our community. Each step of the process has been very rewarding from building the site to hiring our dynamic teaching team.  We are eager to bring the music alive here,” said the couple.

Bach to Rock Encinitas will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including: individual lessons; group classes such as Rock Band; the Beat Refinery DJ school; the Rock City program for preschoolers and toddlers; Kids-n-Keys for children in grades K-2 interested in piano; along with summer camps and birthday parties. 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.  Recently, Bach to Rock launched MyB2R, an online dashboard offering customers real-time access to student progress and more. MyB2R is the only digital service of its kind in the music school industry, and provides the ability to track student advancement, schedule lessons, obtain homework and stream over 300 pre-recorded songs to practice at home.
