First Houston Bach to Rock Franchise Featured in Houston Chronicle

First Houston Bach to Rock Franchise Featured in Houston Chronicle

The Houston Chronicle recently highlighted the new Bach to Rock franchise opening soon in the Memorial area of Houston, Texas. The new site, which will be located at 9075 Katy Free­way, Suite A, is currently under construction and is tentatively slated to open by February 2016. The new location will be the first in the Houston area, and joins 11 other Bach to Rock music schools currently open in the U.S.

Franchise owners Alex and Lynley Stern have obtained rights for two separate Bach to Rock locations and are currently scouting out potential spots for the second location. Both Bach to Rock franchises will offer music instruction programs for children and adults, including individual lessons, group classes and summer camps.

“We both grew up in Hous­ton, so we are pretty fa­mil­iar with Hous­ton proper,” Alex says. “We are think­ing about the West Univer­sity/Bel­laire area or maybe Su­gar Land or The Wood­lands. The thing about Hous­ton is there are so many great ar­eas.”

Alex grew up in Bel­laire and at­tended Bel­laire High School. His wife, Lyn­ley, grew up in the Me­mo­rial area and at­tended Me­mo­rial High School. Both at­tended the Univer­sity of Texas. Alex Stern has an In­ter­net mar­ket­ing back­ground; Lyn­ley Stern is a school teacher. Their educations, career backgrounds and love of music have helped prepare them both for the responsibilities that being a Bach to Rock franchise owner will bring.

“We both love work­ing with kids,” Alex says. “We are both from big fam­i­lies with a lot of nieces and neph­ews. Bach to Rock is a con­cept that re­ally hit home for us be­cause we are both pas­sion­ate about mu­sic, and we wanted to find a busi­ness where we could work with kids. We ex­cel in that en­vi­ron­ment.”

The Bach to Rock music school franchise continues to grow at impressive speed. The franchise is of­ten named to En­trepreneur mag­a­zine’s Fran­chise 500 list and, in 2014, was named one of the fastest-grow­ing pri­vate com­pa­nies in Amer­ica for the third year in a row by Inc. Mag­a­zine. The franchise is also ranked as one of Fran­chise Times mag­a­zine’s 500 Pow­er­house Brands, and is on its Next 300 Fran­chise Sys­tem list.

The new Me­mo­rial lo­ca­tion is among five fran­chise schools the com­pany cur­rently has in de­vel­op­ment, four of which are open­ing this win­ter. An ad­di­tional 30 schools sold na­tion­wide.

“Our suc­cess would not be pos­si­ble with­out our ded­i­cated fran­chisees and site di­rec­tors who are fo­cused on bring­ing mu­sic and arts pro­grams into cities across the coun­try,” says Bach to Rock President Brian Gross. “We look for­ward to of­fer­ing our fun, pro­gres­sive cur­ricu­lum to fam­i­lies in these new mar­kets.”

Alex says the mu­sic lessons in­dus­try is un­der­de­vel­oped in Hous­ton, and that the new Bach to Rock location will offer a mod­ern so­lu­tion to fill that void.

“Mu­sic lessons are tra­di­tion­ally more of an old-school mar­ket where you go to the back of a gui­tar cen­ter or to one-on-one lessons in homes,” he says. “It isn’t in­ter­ac­tive. It’s not fun and mod­ern. Most kids burn out quickly when they have to learn tech­ni­cal stuff. With Bach to Rock, stu­dents point the di­rec­tion of where we go. If they want to learn Tay­lor Swift, we learn Tay­lor Swift and do all sorts of fun things.”

The music school also gets stu­dents into mini-bands of three or four peo­ple with an in­struc­tor to col­lab­o­rate and build con­fi­dence, and is where Adam says the “real magic happens.”
“Each stu­dent is on a dif­fer­ent in­stru­ment. They get to cre­ate their band name, and it’s very cool in­ter­ac­tion that gives these kids a real taste of mu­sic. They are not just stuck in a back­room some­where by them­selves,” he says.

Bach to Rock (B2R), America's music school for students of all ages, announced today it signed a multi-unit franchise agreement with new franchise group, Ruby Capital, LLC, to develop two schools in Texas. The group is targeting locations in Houston and has long-term goals at expanding their presence into the Dallas and Austin areas. Their first school is planned to open in Spring 2016.

"We are thrilled to expand Bach to Rock's presence to the Southwest and we're confident the Houston area, known as one of the largest expanding cities in the region, will love and benefit from our variety of music programs," said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. "With music and arts programs continuing to be cut due to diminishing school budgets, Bach to Rock helps meet the increased need for high-quality music education. We look forward to offering our fun, progressive curriculum to Houston families."

Husband and wife duo, Alex and Lynley Stern, owners of Ruby Capital, LLC, become first-time franchise owners with this latest announcement. After month's of searching, they stumbled across Bach to Rock and determined it was a business model that was missing in the Houston market. Music lovers from an early age, Alex has always enjoyed mixing CD's and singing in school plays, and Lynley has been a pianist since age six.  The couple is excited to become part of the Bach to Rock family and plans to leverage their past experience in the education and Internet marketing industries to bring high quality music education to neighboring communities.

"We cannot wait to start sharing the gift of music with Houstonians and their families. As music lovers from an early age, we understand the value and benefit that music education can bring to young children as they develop," said Alex Stern, Bach to Rock franchisee. "We are excited to join the brand and believe that Bach to Rock provides a positive social setting and the opportunity to learn music while having fun at the same time."

Bach to Rock franchisees are provided with an array of tools to position them for success including extensive hands-on training, marketing and public relations support and a proprietary web-based management system, among other tools. Franchisees also benefit from multiple revenue streams such as individual and group classes, early childhood education programs, state-of-the-art recording studios, summer and winter camps, birthday parties and more.

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, is marking its 10th anniversary with the opening of a new school on October 21, in Northbrook, Illinois, a northern Chicago suburb. Join us from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 1141 Church Street, Northbrook, IL 60062, for a fun-filled musical celebration. The grand opening will showcase the specialties of Bach to Rock since its inception in 2007 – teaching students of all ages to play the music they love in a fun, nurturing, team-oriented and supportive environment.

Bach to Rock opened its first corporate school in 2007 and that Bethesda, Maryland location continues to thrive today. Bach to Rock was built on the novel idea of teaching kids popular music – tunes they could relate to and would want to learn. “With Bach to Rock, the days of solitary, boring music lessons are over. We scrap what kids hate about music classes, incorporate more of what they want, and team kids up immediately,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross. “Bach to Rock is the music school kids would have designed for themselves. They get to jam with other kids right away and play current hits,” continued Gross. The learning is the same, but the enjoyment factor is much higher.

Bach to Rock by the Numbers

In just ten years, Bach to Rock has grown into a respected and profitable franchise opportunity, with top industry rankings noted by Franchise Times, Entrepreneur and Business Week. Bach to Rock’s expansion has been robust and steady. The brand has grown from 6 corporate schools in 2012 to 30 corporate and franchised schools in 21 states by the end of 2017. Nineteen of those schools are in eight Top Ten markets, ranked by population. “We are very proud to say that we’ve reached over 35,000 children and families with our innovative approach to music instruction,” said Gross.

“A Bach to Rock franchise is a solid business opportunity for someone who is entrepreneurial, motivated and eager to help revamp music education. There is such a great need in the marketplace. Our brand has taken off because we are sustainable, profitable and we start up quickly,” continued Gross.

Changing the Way Students Learn Music

Bach to Rock is reshaping music education on a national scale by turning solitary, boring music lessons into a group activity that is more like a team sport. B2R focuses on providing a well-balanced music education because, ultimately, that is what parents are looking for. “Parents obviously want their child to have fun and create a relationship with their teacher, but at the end of the day they need to be learning something. Unlike other music school franchises, Bach to Rock has an extensive curriculum. Our students learn the intricacies of music — from theory to how to read music,” said Aaron Schmidt, B2R director of curriculum.

Recently, Bach to Rock launched MyB2R, an online dashboard offering customers real-time access to student progress and more. MyB2R is the only digital service of its kind in the music school industry, and provides the ability to track student advancement, schedule lessons, obtain homework and stream over 300 pre-recorded songs to practice at home.
