BETHESDA, Md., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bach to Rock (B2R), America's music school for students of all ages, announced today it has launched Rock n Roll, a new early childhood music education program designed for infants and toddlers and their parents. Classes are now available at all six of Bach to Rock's corporate schools in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. The company plans to roll out the program to its franchise locations in New York and Pennsylvania over the next six months.
"We saw an opportunity to expand our class offerings and introduce rock 'n' roll to our youngest musicians to help them not only develop a love for music but also improve hearing, bolster brain function, strengthen reading skills and improve social development," said Brian Gross, president of Bach to Rock. "We believe that this program will become a huge success based on the pilot, and look forward to rolling out the curriculum to Bach to Rock's entire system."
Rock n Roll is designed to help toddlers understand foundational musical concepts through fun and interactive games designed for children and parents to experience together. This 10-week themed music and movement program – such as Rock n Roll ... at the zoo and Rock n Roll... in my Garden – stimulates brain and motor system development through active listening activities and music instrument exploration.
Several expert studies indicate that preschool children benefit from early music education programs and show advancement in developing several skill sets including pre-literacy, motor skills and coordination. Bach to Rock's Rock n Roll program builds a fun learning experience by implementing strong teamwork and cooperative learning. This program also prepares students for Bach to Rock's full range of music education programs for children of all ages.
In 2012, Inc. magazine named Bach to Rock as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the second consecutive year and the Washington Business Journal named it the number one company to watch in 2012. Washington Family Magazine readers also voted it Best Music Instruction winner for 2012.
Bach to Rock is currently seeking candidates to open franchise locations along the East Coast, from Boston to Florida, and plans to broaden its efforts into additional markets across the country. This is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to build a business that is dedicated to helping children and adults learn to play the music they love. While music experience or ability is not necessary, candidates should be able to build a strong team of committed musicians to ensure the school's success.
