Meet B2R’s Father-Son Franchisee Team at the Mt. Juliet School: Russ and Chris Achzet

At the helm of the Mt. Juliet school is the franchisee team of Russ Achzet, and his son Chris.  Russ has over 40 years of experience in family wealth management and consulting.  Chris is the owner of Los Angeles Drum Services, which also has a Nashville location. With over 23 years of experience in drums, backline and production management, Chris has an extensive knowledge of music and music tour productions that will infuse his management of the school.

“I have spent my entire life in music, starting in third grade, which is where the seed was planted for me,” said Chris Achzet. His music class was so much fun, and his teacher was so inspirational, he knew then that his future would revolve around music.  About three years ago, Chris felt compelled to help provide quality music education to today’s youth after noticing a lack of funding and support in public schools.  He sought out Bach to Rock and found the answer.  “I’ve had a blessed career in live music performance as a result of my grammar school music teacher. I wanted to bring the same level of passion and commitment to children in the Mt. Juliet area,” said Achzet. Bach to Rock offers a curriculum-based music program that teaches all instruments with a strong focus on performance. “Music brings such joy to everyone. As a listener, as a performer. It transcends age, race, nationality. Music doesn’t care who you are. I am so thrilled to be opening our Bach to Rock school to offer that to our students,” Achzet added.

Chris has worked many renowned artists, including: Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Rihanna, Madonna, Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Cher, Jennifer Lopez, Jewel, Peter Frampton, Back Street Boys, Janet Jackson, Ronnie James Dio, Black Sabbath, Great White, the Rolling Stones and many more. Chris is also a voting member of the Country Music Association, a published contributor to Drum! magazine and an innovator in drum hardware.

Bach to Rock Mt. Juliet offers programs for students of all ages including: individual and group lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drums and more; “Rock City” for preschoolers and “Rock and Roll” for toddlers; beginning piano “Kids n Keys” for children in grades K-2; and summer camps and birthday parties. Plus, students can get involved in a glee club or rock band.  Check out this video for more details about the school.
