The 4-part series continues with the introduction Rick and Holly Schmidt, the husband-and-wife owners of two Bach to Rock music schools in Tampa and Orlando, Florida.

“The franchisee spotlight campaign has been very fulfilling. First, we’ve been able to provide an excellent resource for people interested in pursuing Bach to Rock franchise ownership.

He has a keen eye for talent and knows how to help students explore their skills and grow to the next level.” The spotlight campaign will provide essential information for others considering a livelihood as a Bach to Rock music school owner.

Before opening the Tampa school, Rick enjoyed a 20+ year career in the music and radio industry. Highlights include programming Tampa’s 98Rock and some of the nation’s largest rock radio stations, signing recording artists to music labels and marketing large events and venues. As a radio program director, Schmidt helped launch the careers of Florida bands Sister Hazel, Creed and Shinedown. Rick also represented various artists that have collectively: sold over 1.5 million albums; scored four top-15 rock hits; received video play on MTV; had music featured in video games, and even had one artist provide the walk-up song for former Tampa Bay Rays baseball all-star, Evan Longoria.

Rick Schmidt shared some key advice for potential franchisees, “Hire good people who WANT to teach. Create an environment where your customers enjoy their time at your school. Give your staff the tools they need to do their jobs. And make sure you know your customers’ names.” Rick also believes in being on top of the details, “Always sweat the small stuff. Details are the difference between good and great.”
