 Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, proudly announces the opening of a new school in Carmel, Indiana.  The community is invited to the free grand opening festivities on Saturday, August 18, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 2480 E. 146th Street, Carmel, Indiana, 46033. 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, enter prize drawings and giveaways, check out the recording studio, and enjoy performances by instructors.  This location marks Bach to Rock’s first school in Indiana and its 34th in the country. 

“We are thrilled to be opening our newest school in Carmel. It’s one of the fastest growing cities in Indiana and has thriving, family-oriented neighborhoods.   I am confident that families in the Hamilton County area will greatly benefit from our progressive music education program,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.  “With Bach to Rock, students learn to play today’s hits and jam with other kids from the start. It’s more of a group activity or team sport.  Gone are the days of boring and solitary music lessons,” continued Gross. The school will serve students from Carmel, Noblesville, Westfield, Fishers and Zionsville.

New Bach to Rock franchisees Andrew and Jennifer Flickner are the proud owners of the school.  The dynamic husband and wife team hails from Zionsville and is eager to unveil their new school to the community.  Andrew is an active musician, performing and teaching for many years in the Indianapolis area. “Opening a Bach to Rock music school is the ultimate dream come true for Jennifer and me,” said Andrew Flickner.  The duo is excited to help students achieve their musical ambitions. “Bach to Rock delivers a solid music foundation in a fun and progressive way. It’s the best of both worlds –parents and their children alike will love the results,” said Jennifer Flickner.

Bach to Rock Carmel will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including: individual and group lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drum, DJ and more; music programs for preschoolers and toddlers; beginning piano for children in grades K-2; along with summer camps and birthday parties. Bach to Rock also offers 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.  

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. Unlike other music school franchises, Bach to Rock has an extensive curriculum. Students learn the intricacies of music — from theory to how to read music. 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. The learning is the same, but the enjoyment factor is much higher.
