Tampa’s New Bach to Rock Music School Delivers a Fresh Take on Music Lessons

Tampa’s New Bach to Rock Music School Delivers a Fresh Take on Music Lessons

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, proudly announces the opening of its newest school in Tampa, Florida. The community is invited to the free grand opening event on Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 17463 N. Dale Mabry Highway, Lutz, Florida, 33548 in the Van Dyke Commons shopping plaza.  Attendees are invited to tour the school, which pays tribute to Florida bands and musicians, take a free music lesson, enter prize drawings and giveaways, and enjoy live performances.  A wide assortment of music memorabilia will adorn the school’s hallways and walls, including references to Matchbox 20, NSync, Tom Petty and Lynyrd Skynyrd — who each debuted in Florida.

Tampa resident Rick Schmidt is the new franchise owner of the school. As a music and radio executive for over 20 years, he is tapping into his background to offer families a meaningful and valuable music education experience for their kids. “Having a hands-on franchise owner with Rick Schmidt’s experience adds a certain cachet. His roots in the radio and music industry are deep. He knows how to help musicians grow and evolve their talents,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.  Schmidt’s career includes programming Tampa’s 98Rock and some of the nation’s largest rock radio stations, signing recording artists to music labels and marketing large events and venues.  As a radio program director, Schmidt helped launch the careers of Florida bands Sister Hazel, Creed and Shinedown.

Schmidt has also represented various artists that have collectively: sold over 1.5 million albums; scored four top-15 rock hits; received video play on MTV; had music featured in video games, and even had one artist provide the walk-up song for former Tampa Bay Rays baseball all-star, Evan Longoria.

“Owning a Bach to Rock school is a high point in my career. I’m able to give back to our community and help inspire a new generation of musicians with our progressive music education program,” said Schmidt.   Bach to Rock dials in to what’s hot in music to appeal to students and cultivates their talents from there.  “We teach the basics and music theory, but we make it relatable, which helps foster learning,” continued Schmidt.  Bach to

to Rock provides instruction in a variety of music genres like alternative, country, pop, rock, jazz and EDM.

 

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. 

Bach to Rock Lutz 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.

Bach to Rock Music School Coming to Tampa in Fall 2018

3 years ago

Bach to Rock (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, announced today that a lease has been signed for its first school in Tampa, which is slated to open in fall 2018. Tampa resident, Rick Schmidt, is the new franchise owner of the school which will be located in the Van Dyke Commons shopping plaza at 17463 N. Dale Mabry Highway, Lutz, Florida, 33548.

“We are thrilled to be opening a school in Tampa and with Rick Schmidt at the helm, it is bound to thrive,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross.  “Rick Schmidt’s experience in the radio and music industry includes programming Tampa’s 98Rock and some of the nation’s largest rock radio stations, signing recording artists to music labels and marketing large events and venues.”  As a radio program director, Schmidt helped launch the careers of Sister Hazel, Creed and Shinedown.

With an eye and ear for talent, Schmidt has represented various artists that have collectively: sold over 1.5 million albums; scored four top-15 rock hits; received video play on MTV; had music featured in video games, and even had one artist provide the walk-up song for former Tampa Bay Rays baseball all-star, Evan Longoria.  Currently a marketing and music executive, he aims to leverage his 20-plus years of industry expertise to introduce families to Bach to Rock’s innovative music enrichment program and inspire a new generation of musicians.

Additionally, he has spent most of his life as a Tampa resident and now is raising his four active children in the Odessa community.  “Tampa Bay area families will surely benefit from the progressive music education program that Bach to Rock provides in a variety of music genres like alternative, country, pop, rock, jazz and edm,” said Schmidt.  A few years ago, he researched music schools for his children and found that most local schools are in teacher homes or small offices. He wanted to find something unique and innovative, not only for his kids, but other aspiring musicians.  Bach to Rock was the answer.  Bach to Rock offers a fun and cool approach to music education -  gone are the days of boring and solitary lessons. “Owning a Bach to Rock school enables me to bring together everything that I love. I can give back to my community, help cultivate future musicians and jump start the music education industry here in Tampa,” continued Schmidt.

In a fierce competition at the 2019 Bach to Rock Battle of the Bands, 36 bands went head-to-head at City Winery in New York City on Sunday, June 9.

Over 800 proud parents, family members and fans came to support and cheer on students from Bach to Rock Port Washington, Bach to Rock Mamaroneck and Bach to Rock Nanuet.

The groups performed in both the Main Space and The Loft at City Winery and rocked the iconic hotspot.

“The students, who range in age from 7 to 18, and their band coaches worked tirelessly for months to prepare for this tremendous event and I’m beyond proud of all the performers,” said Bach to Rock Port Washington Director Elana Hayden. “While this is a competition, the main point is for the kids to have a great experience, to get to perform in a top New York City venue – and to have fun and feel like a rock star!”

Six seasoned music industry professionals, Carolee Goodgold (Carly Simon), John Miller (Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton), Brandon “Taz” Niederauer (Lady Gaga, Dr. John), Cameron Rasmussen (Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway), Jason Reese (Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti) and Wayne Schuster (Blood, Sweat, and Tears) judged the performances.

Over 150 students performed on stages that have hosted Lou Reed, Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborne, Taj Mahal, Patti Smith, and Buster Poindexter to name a few.

The bands were scored on several criteria including musical ability, technical ability, stage presence, material, creativity, and professionalism. All the competitors study a variety of musical disciplines at Bach to Rock music school, including music theory, instrument instruction, recording arts, performance arts, voice lessons and band coaching.

This is our student of the month: Indica! She has been playing piano for one year now! When she isn't playing music, she enjoys biking and disc golf. A fun fact about Indica is that her name means "night star princess protected by wolves". Her favorite thing about being a part of Bach to Rock is singing with her band Purple Nightmare, as well as playing piano with her mom who also takes lessons here. Congrats Indica!
