Meet New Bach to Rock Franchisees Lee and Mengjia Chen

As recent transplants from Maryland to San Diego, new Bach to Rock franchisees Lee and Mengjia Chen are thrilled to finally open their Bach to Rock school.  The husband and wife team has had Bach to Rock on their radar for nearly three years. Following their cross-country relocation, they realized the time was right to bring their dream of owning a music school to life.  “We love the concept of having fun while learning music! Growing up learning to play piano, the methods were boring, and I hated practicing,” said Lee Chen.  The couple knows their two children, and other children in the community, will enjoy Bach to Rock’s progressive and innovative approach to music lessons. “We are excited to give all the young hearts in our community such a wonderful opportunity to truly love music lessons at our Bach to Rock school,” added Mengjia Chen.  

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.
