WAYNE, Pa. - July 8, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Bach to Rock (B2R), America's music school for students of all ages, announced today that the latest B2R school is gearing up to open in Wayne, Pa. The community is invited to an open house scheduled for Saturday, July 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Families, neighbors and residents are invited to tour the school, meet the teachers, learn about summer camp programs, check out the recording studio, win prizes, and more. The school is located at 226 Sugartown Road in Wayne and is the first Bach to Rock to open in Pennsylvania.
"After months of preparation and training, we are so excited to officially open our doors to the public," said B2R Wayne owner and site director Dave Leonard, who owns the school with his wife, Ellen Good. "We offer a variety of music programs for students of all ages, from early childhood to adults, and can't wait to be a part of the local arts community."
B2R transforms music instruction into a team sport by coupling individual instruction with band practice that keeps students motivated by playing in a group. The school combines performance training with a curriculum built on the tenants of music theory, ear training, technique and repertoire. Students learn how to read and write music and are encouraged to compose original songs. Throughout their learning experience, students are able to showcase their talents through a variety of events. Performing in front of their peers not only enhances their performance skills, but also more importantly helps them to increase self-esteem and build confidence.
"We are thrilled to expand Bach to Rock's presence with the opening of our eighth school in Pennsylvania," said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. "We know that with Dave and Ellen's leadership, their team of handpicked, quality, professional instructors will make Bach to Rock a hub of the Wayne music community."
Summer camp registration is still open at the Bach to Rock Wayne location. Additionally, the school offers a variety of individual lessons and group ensembles such as Glee Club, Rock Band and early childhood classes. Visit http://www.b2rmusic.com/wayne for more information or call (610) 989-7625.
Bach to Rock (B2R) is a music education school for students of all ages from early childhood through high school and beyond. Learning music should be fun and students learn best when they play music they enjoy. Weekly ensemble instruction and band formations 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 performances. To date, there are eight B2R schools currently located in Maryland in Bethesda and Gaithersburg, Virginia in McLean, Herndon, South Riding and Lansdowne, as well as two franchise-owned schools in Port Washington, N.Y. and Wayne, Pa.
