Bach to Rock Unleashes Musical Sensations During B2R Battle of the Bands XI

Student Bands from Elementary through High School Showcase Talent & Compete to Win in Semi-Annual Event

BETHESDA, Md., Dec. 10, 2012 // PRNewswire // - Bach to Rock (B2R), America's music school for students of all ages, announced today that B2R Battle of the Bands XI will kick-off at the Fillmore Silver Spring January 12-13, 2013, before strumming back to the 9:30 Club on January 27, 2013, for a jam band showdown. Hundreds of local area students will showcase their incredible talent, performing a mix of original music and popular hits, for a chance to win professional studio recording time.

"We're expecting a packed house at this years' Battle of the Bands competition," said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. "Our student bands have been practicing for weeks and are ready to hit the stage. We encourage the local community to come out to this fun, exciting event and cheer on their hometown rock stars."

A semi-annual tradition for the students enrolled in B2R's Jam Band program, the 2013 Battle of the Bands will take place over three days:

January 12, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. – Elementary students perform at the Fillmore Silver Spring

January 13, 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. – Middle school students perform at the Fillmore Silver Spring

January 27, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. – High school students perform at the 9:30 Club in D.C.

In total, there will be more than 80 bands competing, and thousands of friends, family members and excited fans in the audience cheering them on. Battling bands will be evaluated based on musicianship, ensemble precision and stage presence. Winners will receive the opportunity to work with a professional audio engineer to record original material in B2R's state-of-the-art recording studios. Their performances will also be posted on B2Rmusic.com, as well as B2R's Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages.

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. Washington Family Magazine readers also voted it Best Music Instruction. Co-founded by a Juilliard-trained middle school teacher, B2R transformed music instruction into a team sport by coupling rigorous individual instruction with "jam sessions" that keep students motivated by playing in a group. To date, there are six corporate-owned schools located in Maryland and Virgina, as well as one franchise-owned school in Port Washington, New York slated to open in early 2013. The brand recently announced a development agreement to expand its footprint in Pennsylvania. To learn more, visit www.b2rmusic.com.
