RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Bach To Rock will open its first music school in Connecticut in Ridgefield at 15 Danbury Road, Suite 5.
The school, which will be located in the Girolametti Plaza, is for children and adults.
Young children start with music, rhythm and motion that supports cognitive development, learning and motor skills. B2R Early Childhood classes combine structured musical games and activities to promote learning and musical growth while exposing children to the fundamentals of music.
The school uses an innovative approach to music instruction based on the belief that everyone learns faster playing the music they like, whether it’s rock or Bach, the technical foundation is the same.
Weekly jam sessions lead to Battles of the Bands and recording sessions in B2R Studios. B2R also holds regularly scheduled public concerts that encourage students to become seasoned performers.
From Bach to Blue Oyster Cult, from Mozart to Mayer, Cash to Clash and Puccini to Perry (Katy or Steve), Bach to Rock offers a wide variety of lessons in all music genres. Lessons are available in guitar, bass, drums, vocals, keyboard, brass, strings, ukulele and more.
Construction and soundproofing has begun on a 3,000 square foot studio which will include a lobby, ramp entrance for strollers and handicap access, 17 rooms, a party room with a DJ setup and backlights, a stage for live music and open mic nights.
People are encouraged to meet the teachers and staff of Bach to Rock Ridgefield, on Saturday, July 23 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce's Annual Summerfest. There will also be an opportunity to win free lessons. Wendy Ann Mitchell is the site director at Bach to Rock Ridgefield.
