“Thanks to our franchisees, Judy Shoulak and her son Jake, Bach to Rock is making great strides to reach more and more students in the greater Minneapolis area with our progressive, comprehensive teaching methodology. We have seen the amazing influence music has in shaping children’s lives and the Shoulaks embody the Bach to Rock commitment to transforming lives through music,” said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock.

The Minnetonka location joins the Shoulaks’ existing Bach to Rock schools in Plymouth and Coon Rapids, which opened in 2018 and 2022 respectively. “We are filled with such joy and pride to be opening our third school.  It’s incredible to think that we’ve provided lessons to over 3,000 students since we opened our first school. It has been heartwarming to see how music plays a key role in the lives of so many…filling voids, building confidence, and helping provide pleasure and happiness,” said Judy Shoulak.  Click here to read more about the Shoulaks’ success story.

Plus, students can get involved in a glee club or rock band.  The school features Bach to Rock’s Beat Refinery® DJ lessons, which teach students how to master the turntables through practical and artistic training.
