Bach to Rock Expands to Philadelphia With New Franchise Agreement
"We love that Bach to Rock encourages people coming out of service to become entrepreneurs through its veteran incentive program," Leonard added. "Music brings us joy and we never had the opportunity to develop it into something full-time until now."
Co-founded by a Juilliard-trained middle school teacher, B2R transformed music instruction five years ago into a team sport by coupling rigorous individual instruction with "jam sessions" that keep students motivated by playing in a group. The first corporate-owned location in Bethesda, Md., opened in 2007; B2R now has six corporate-owned schools, including two in Maryland and four in Virginia. In 2012, Inc. magazine named Bach to Rock as one of the fastest growing private companies in America for the second consecutive year and the Washington Business Journal named it the number one company to watch in 2012.
Bach to Rock is currently seeking candidates to open franchise locations along the East Coast, from New York to Florida, and plans to broaden its efforts into additional markets across the country. This is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to build a business that is dedicated to helping children, seniors and adults learn to play the music they love. While music experience or ability is not necessary, candidates should be able to build a strong team of committed musicians to ensure the school's success.

About Bach to Rock
Bach to Rock (B2R) is a music education school for students of all ages from early childhood through high school and beyond. The B2R method is based on the belief that learning music is fun and students learn best when they play music they enjoy. Weekly ensemble instruction and jam sessions lead to public concerts, Battle of the Bands and recording sessions in B2R's professional recording studios. B2R builds technique, fosters teamwork and enhances self-esteem through private lessons, band instruction, and public performance. B2R schools are currently located in Maryland in Bethesda and Gaithersburg, and in Virginia in McLean, Herndon, South Riding and Landsdowne. The franchise-owned Port Washington, NY location will open in November 2012. The company was voted "Best Music Instruction" in 2012 by Washington Family Magazine.
