Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, proudly announces the opening of a new school in Rancho Peñasquitos, California.  Families in Rancho Peñasquitos are invited to learn all about Bach to Rock at the school’s free grand opening on Saturday, February 15, 2020 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 13185 Black Mountain Road, #1, San Diego, CA 92129, in the Rancho Peñasquitos Towne Center.  Attendees can tour the school, enjoy a free music lesson, learn about individual lessons and group classes, try out free toddler “Mommy and Me” classes, enter prize drawings and giveaways, check out the recording studio, and enjoy performances by instructors.  The school will serve students from Rancho Peñasquitos, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Sabre Springs, Black Mountain Ranch, 4S Ranch, Rancho Bernardo, Carmel Valley, Torrey Highlands, Poway, Scripps Ranch, Mira Mesa and Del Mar. This location marks Bach to Rock’s second school in San Diego, and its 41st in the country.

Bach to Rock Rancho Peñasquitos will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including: individual and group lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drums and more; “Rock City” for preschoolers and “Rock n Roll” for toddlers; beginning piano “Kids n Keys” for children in grades K-2; and summer camps and birthday parties.

Nationwide, Bach to Rock has instructed over 55,000 aspiring musicians since opening its first school in 2007.  The brand delivers a twist on traditional music lessons, offering something that’s akin to team sports with a spirit of creativity and fun to inspire students. “With Bach to Rock, gone are the days of boring and solitary music lessons.  Students learn to play today’s hits and jam with other kids from the start. You’ll see students paired up in groups and teams to help ignite the musical energy,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.

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.

For example, we plan to introduce ‘writer’s rounds’ where students perform in small groups and give positive, and constructive feedback to each other,” Peacock continued. “As a musician, I know the importance of having a fun, supportive learning environment, and Tara and I are confident we can help aspiring young musicians achieve their best at Bach to Rock Nashville West.”

In a fierce competition at the 2019 Bach to Rock Battle of the Bands, 36 bands went head-to-head at City Winery in New York City on Sunday, June 9.

Over 800 proud parents, family members and fans came to support and cheer on students from Bach to Rock Port Washington, Bach to Rock Mamaroneck and Bach to Rock Nanuet.

The groups performed in both the Main Space and The Loft at City Winery and rocked the iconic hotspot.

“The students, who range in age from 7 to 18, and their band coaches worked tirelessly for months to prepare for this tremendous event and I’m beyond proud of all the performers,” said Bach to Rock Port Washington Director Elana Hayden. “While this is a competition, the main point is for the kids to have a great experience, to get to perform in a top New York City venue – and to have fun and feel like a rock star!”

Six seasoned music industry professionals, Carolee Goodgold (Carly Simon), John Miller (Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton), Brandon “Taz” Niederauer (Lady Gaga, Dr. John), Cameron Rasmussen (Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway), Jason Reese (Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti) and Wayne Schuster (Blood, Sweat, and Tears) judged the performances.

Over 150 students performed on stages that have hosted Lou Reed, Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborne, Taj Mahal, Patti Smith, and Buster Poindexter to name a few.

The bands were scored on several criteria including musical ability, technical ability, stage presence, material, creativity, and professionalism. All the competitors study a variety of musical disciplines at Bach to Rock music school, including music theory, instrument instruction, recording arts, performance arts, voice lessons and band coaching.

This is our student of the month: Indica! She has been playing piano for one year now! When she isn't playing music, she enjoys biking and disc golf. A fun fact about Indica is that her name means "night star princess protected by wolves". Her favorite thing about being a part of Bach to Rock is singing with her band Purple Nightmare, as well as playing piano with her mom who also takes lessons here. Congrats Indica!
