What: Bach to Rock’s Karaoke Birthday Party is the perfect party for kids and adults eager to become a rock star for a day! Designed for ages 6 to adult (the only prerequisite is they must know how to read), the first step is for the birthday guest of honor to select a song from B2R’s birthday party song list that includes current pop hits (Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran) and classic rock gems (Beatles, Journey). Party length is 90 minutes.
How: During the party, the guests will work with a vocal instructor on learning the song, as well as receiving proper singing and breathing techniques. Click to view our PARTY SONGLIST.
With: With the help of B2R’s sound engineer, the guests will record the song in our professional recording studio! At the end of the party, every guest receives a B2R goody bag filled with treats and the CD of their recording; the birthday guest also receives a T-shirt! Thirty minutes of the party also includes usage of B2R’s birthday party room for any food you would like to bring, as well as presents.

"The birthday party was fun and interactive for the kids. Giving them a chance to play instruments was an added bonus. Great staff who made it fun for the kids. Thanks!"

"Our son had a great birthday party there. Several parents emailed us to tell us what a great time their kids had and how original the party was. Gabe and Jason, who ran the party, did a great job teaching the kids the song and helping them record it. The kids were mostly 5 and 6 years old and the two of them were very patient and made it really fun. Everything went smoothly, from booking the party all the way to the end."

"This was the perfect place for a birthday party! The facilities are awesome, the staff were amazing and helpful (especially with our energetic group of 5/6 year olds) and the planning was incredibly easy. All of the parents were eager to learn more about Bach to Rock and their classes and we overheard several kids saying, "This is the best party ever!" Thanks for making our daughter's day so special - we'll definitely be back soon!"

"I loved the caring and friendly staff. I liked the party format. The studio recording with the song of choice and my son's friends singing happy birthday to him was awesome. I loved that all the kids got to take the CD home. My son's birthday party rocked yesterday!!! Thank you for making it such a memorable experience for him!"
