Bach to Rock

Bach 2 Rocks believes that:

  • Learning to play music should be fun. It’s called ‘play’ for a reason.
  • Students feel motivated by playing with their peers.
  • A student’s individual music instruction should be supplemented by jam sessions and playing in a band.
  • Like a sports team, a band builds teamwork, develops social skills, fosters self-esteem, promotes peer recognition, and leads to lasting friendships.
  • Students learn faster playing music they like, whether it’s Rock or Bach. And the technical foundation is the same.
