July 11, 2014 // Franchising.com // The recent debut of the Bach to Rock music school franchise in Folsom, California, was a big hit in the Sacramento area -- and for good reason.
The opening of the school marks the brand's introduction to the West Coast, and it's only the beginning. More schools are planned west of the Mississippi, including 10 franchise locations in Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
A clear national leader in the music school franchise industry, Bach to Rock expects to triple in size by the end of 2015 and envisions opening 500 schools in the next decade.
"We're thrilled to open the first Bach to Rock on the West Coast and introduce our innovative music instruction to the Folsom community," said Melissa Bartell, Site Director of Bach to Rock Folsom. "We think students will love the variety of programs we offer and will enjoy receiving personalized instruction based on their skill level, so we can make learning music fun. We look forward to sharing the gift of music with families for many years to come."
Bach to Rock is transforming music education on a national scale at a time when music instruction in schools is dwindling, despite the soaring demand. They're taking the lead in music education with a unique approach that allows students of all ages to explore the kinds of music they love -- and then play that music in bands and ensembles that perform in their communities.
"Folsom and Sacramento County are like many communities across the United States -- the demand for high-quality music education is at an all-time high, and yet federal and state budget cuts are continuing to eliminate music and arts programs," said Brian Gross, President of Bach to Rock. "Every student should have the opportunity to be exposed to music education, so we are excited to introduce our fun, progressive curriculum to families in Folsom."
Bach to Rock experienced a 61% growth rate from 2009 to 2013 and was recently named to "Inc." magazine's annual 500|5000 list for the third year in a row. Most recently, Bach to Rock was named to Franchise Gator's 2014 Top Emerging Franchises list.
