Bach to Rock Music School Releases Newest Franchisee Profile

March 14, 2024 // // Bethesda, MD - Bach to Rock today is unveiling its latest profile as part of a series that spotlights prominent Bach to Rock franchisees. By delving into their stories, Bach to Rock is providing a comprehensive look at why these franchisees decided to become music school owners and the impact they are having in their communities.

The newest profile spotlights Marc and Lisa Salzman of Bach to Rock Denville in New Jersey, which opened in 2018. Lisa and Marc each bring a wealth of experience to the endeavor. Lisa earned her bachelor's degree in Spanish and international studies and pursued a successful and rewarding career in leadership, marketing, and communications in New York. Lisa’s strengths in building and cultivating strong teams and work cultures has been a key factor in Bach to Rock Denville’s success. Marc was always a fan of music, playing trumpet, piano, and guitar. While staying close to music, Marc earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, and later earned his MBA at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He continues his work in the high-tech software industry and is actively involved in the school.

The Salzmans live by the credo, “do well to do good,” inspired by Lisa’s father, Dr. George Toth. As a devoted educator, he influenced the lives of many college students he taught and mentored over his 30+ year career in higher education. George was a respected figure in his community and enjoyed volunteering for several causes and organizations. “Bach to Rock Denville is owned and operated by Grandpa George’s Opus, Inc., in memory of my dad,” said Lisa. “We wanted to continue his legacy, and Bach to Rock was the perfect avenue for us because it combines community, education, business, technology, and the opportunity to ‘do well to do good.’”

“Marc and Lisa opened our first school in New Jersey. They wanted to create and build something that was meaningful and linked to their community,” said Brian Gross, President of Bach to Rock. Marc’s musical talents, Lisa’s leadership experience, and the couple’s desire to focus on making music and the arts available and accessible led them to Bach to Rock. “Lisa and Marc really felt the opportunity was meant to be,” continued Gross. “They have made a lasting impression on the Denville community, and they continue to positively impact students whose lives have become enriched by learning music at their school.”

Another motivating factor in becoming Bach to Rock franchisees was Marc’s enthusiasm for music. When he grew up, music lessons were not exciting or fun. “Bach to Rock has been instrumental in shaping the evolution of music education programming and that was a driver in our decision.” The Bach to Rock curriculum gets students playing the music they love from day one while also ensuring kids have a solid foundation in music theory. Marc is also passionate about technology, business, entrepreneurship, working with kids, and community building. “Owning a Bach to Rock has brought together all these elements into a single business experience, plus we have the ability to change lives and give back.”
