A Different Kind of Music Education Franchise Opportunity

We run profitable music schools by scrapping what kids hate about music lessons and incorporating more of what they want. When kids picture playing an instrument, do you think they picture themselves playing “Mary Had a Little Lamb” and learning classical Spanish guitar? Or do you think they see themselves jamming to their favorite music?

Bach to Rock is a unique national franchise offering lucrative franchise opportunities in one of the most underserved segments of the franchise industry: music education. Despite clear evidence that music education aids academic performance, music instruction in schools is dwindling, thereby increasing demand nationwide for private music instruction and presenting extensive franchise opportunities.

Bach to Rock is the Music School Kids Would Design for Themselves

Unlike traditional music instruction, we turn music into a team sport. Bach to Rock employs a unique approach to music education that allows children to explore the kinds of music they love and then play that music with other students in bands that perform in public spaces.

Students are much more motivated to learn when they’re playing the music they want to play surrounded by bandmates.

Picture being a seventh-grader who wants to learn guitar. You go to Bach to Rock and immediately start learning to play the songs on your phone. Then you are introduced to your bandmates: Zane is on the drums, Isabella is lead singer, Amir is on the bass, and Sophia is on the keyboards and sings backup. You play together as a group, music blaring, amps turned up high. Your Bach to Rock teacher encourages you turn it up and let it rip. Then the lesson is over. Would you want to come back the next week? Can you see why we are successful?

Team Approach to Music Instruction Makes our Business Model Very Successful

On average, our students stay in music lessons at Bach to Rock for more than 70 weeks. We generate buzz, which keeps kids coming in the front door. We treat them like stars, which keeps them coming back.

And, despite clear evidence that music education helps kids in school, music instruction in schools is dwindling, and that is increasing demand nationwide for private music instruction. As music and arts are increasingly pushed out of school curricula, parents are willing to spend a lot of money on private lessons. The future looks bright.
