BACH TO ROCK is a music education center for students of all ages. Our unique method is based on the knowledge that students learn best when they join together to play the music they like the most. That’s why we use special arrangements of the music of our time and combine individual lessons with band instruction.
Learning to play music should be fun; it’s called “play” for a reason! Individual lessons develop a student’s musical and instrumental skills by combining time-tested and innovative techniques. Lessons offered in piano, guitar, bass, drums, voice, strings, woodwinds, brass and others. Students of all ages and levels, including adults, are welcome.
All B2R students are strongly encouraged to join a band. Like sports, a band builds teamwork, develops social skills, fosters self-esteem, promotes peer recognition and leads to lasting friendships. All B2R bands are also invited to compete at the annual Battle of the Bands. Students taking private lessons elsewhere are welcome to join B2R bands.
This premier choral ensemble offers a dynamic atmosphere for male and female students to unlock their inner star! Students explore fun vocal exercises, singing in harmony and cool choreography while performing arrangements of popular songs. The group learning experience emphasizes reading music, intonation, listening skills, rhythm and healthy vocal technique.
Rock n Roll is a fun, high energy and stimulating music and movement class for caregivers and children aged 6 months through 3 years old. Classical and modern music along with age-appropriate themes make this class fun for children and parents. Experience the developmental benefits of music through singing, dancing, exploring age-appropriate instruments and more!
Pre-schoolers develop the skills needed to read music, play simple rhythms and develop fine motor control. These skills lay the foundation for future success in playing an instrument. The course includes dynamic musical and movement-based activities, exposure to live instruments and musically inspired story-time.
KIDS N KEYS (AGES 5 - 7)
In a fun-filled keyboard/computer lab, children are exposed to the fundamentals of music. As they learn to read music and play the piano, students encounter the concepts, symbols and sounds that form the basis of music literacy. Activities and games involving listening, movement, singing and creative music-making prepare a child for musical success.
