Meet New Bach to Rock Franchisee Ashwin Kotian

New Bach to Rock franchisee Ashwin Kotian is pleased to be opening the first Bach to Rock school in the Austin area.  He is an entrepreneur with a background in technology and 20+ years of expertise in strategy, product development, marketing and operations. His musical journey has evolved since the early 2000s, when he was a thrash metal drummer in the San Francisco Bay area, to today as a performing DJ in Austin. “Opening a music school and helping students pursue their passion to become musicians has always been a dream of mine. As a father of two elementary school kids, I have always wanted to be involved with and give back to the community using music and technology as a medium,” said Kotian. “Both as a musician and a parent, I know the joy that music gives people and how it excites children in particular. This is an opportunity to expand my entrepreneurial spirit while educating and inspiring a new generation of music-lovers,” added Kotian.  

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.
