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, announced today it is opening a new school in Encinitas, California.   The community is invited to the free grand opening festivities on Sunday, June 25, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at 282 N. El Camino Real, Suite C, Encinitas, California, 92024. Attendees are welcome to tour the school, enjoy a free music lesson, learn about individual lessons and group classes, try out free toddler “Mommy and Me” classes, take a spin at becoming a DJ, enter into prize drawings and giveaways, check out the recording studio, and meet the teachers.

“We are thrilled to be opening our first Bach to Rock school in Southern California.  Our innovative approach to music lessons is a perfect fit for families in Encinitas and the communities of Carlsbad, Solana Beach, Del Mar, San Marcos and Rancho Santa Fe,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.  Bach to Rock was founded on the premise that learning how to play music should be fun. And it’s proven that students learn best when they play music they love. “At Bach to Rock, students launch into learning popular favorites while our teachers expertly nurture their potential and share the fundamentals of music as they progress,” said Gross.

New Bach to Rock franchisees Amy and Rick Walker are the proud owners of the school. “We are very motivated to ensure our school becomes a valuable resource for aspiring musicians of all ages to cultivate their talents,” said the couple.  The duo brings an ideal combination of skills to the venture.  Rick is an environmental, health and safety professional, as well as a part-time working musician in the band “Sometimes Julie,” which released its second CD last year.  Amy is an IT trainer and instructional designer, with a foundation in education.  “Owning a Back to Rock franchise is an opportunity to blend our interests to deliver a unique service to our community. Each step of the process has been very rewarding from building the site to hiring our dynamic teaching team.  We are eager to bring the music alive here,” said the couple.  

Bach to Rock Encinitas will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including: individual lessons; group classes such as Rock Band; the Beat Refinery DJ school; the Rock City program for preschoolers and toddlers; Kids-n-Keys for children in grades K-2 interested in piano; along with summer camps and birthday parties. Studies have shown that learning to play music in a group helps students learn teamwork, develop social skills and build self-esteem, among other benefits.  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.  

Bach to Rock is expanding at a robust and steady pace.  The franchise has repeatedly been named to Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 and was listed in the Top Ten Trending Categories for 2016. Franchise Times has ranked it as one of the 500 Powerhouse Brands and on its Next 300 Franchise System list.

Bach to Rock is currently seeking qualified candidates to open franchise locations in major metropolitan markets throughout the country. Bach to Rock is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to build a business that is dedicated to helping children and adults learn to play the music they love.
