How Much Money Can I Make?

Bach to Rock attracts franchisees who want to build multiple units. These are some of the ways our schools make money.

Music Education Franchise: Multiple Revenue Streams

The average student at Bach to Rock takes 70 weeks of music instruction, but those aren’t necessarily consecutive. Many children take summers off, for instance, to vacation with their families. Bach to Rock has created multiple streams of revenue to maximize earnings potential for our franchisees. Here are some of the ways our schools make money:

Private lessons. Before students get into ensembles, they typically sign up for some one-on-one instruction.

Band lessons. The most appealing part of the Bach to Rock instruction method is also a moneymaker, since many parents are eager to sign up their kids for an opportunity to perform with a band in public.

Summer camps. This is how it all began for Bach to Rock, and limited-engagement summer sessions are a very popular way to introduce kids to everything our schools have to offer.

Parties and corporate events. Bach to Rock events are popular with all ages — from first-graders to 50-year-olds. They are customized for birthdays, anniversaries, corporate team-building events and more. One of our most requested events, the Karaoke Birthday Party, brings partiers of all ages into our recording studio.

Recording studio. Local bands take advantage of our full-scale 16-channel recording studio, where students also record their music. Bands often come in the mornings (before Bach to Rock classes are underway) and after lessons are over in the evenings.

Beat Refinery DJ Lessons. Aspiring DJs & Producers can learn and hone their craft right here at Bach to Rock. Group and private lessons cover mixing, scratching and music production curriculum.
