Piano Lessons in Midlothian VA

Piano Lessons in Midlothian VA

Bach to Rock in Midlothian, VA is enrolling piano students of all ages and skill levels. The piano is a springboard for the study of all other instruments. On the piano, students learn to read notes simultaneously in two different clefs (treble and bass) while developing their sense of polyphony (hearing more than one sound at the same time). The piano is physically easy to play, making it possible for a student to make a good musical sound or combination of notes on the piano faster than on any other instrument. This reinforces the desire to learn.

Our teachers have availability for private & semi-private lessons. We also offer a beginner Kids n Keys class for ages 5-7, which introduces children to the fundamentals of music and piano playing in a fun group-setting.

Check out our student and staff performances around Midlothian and Richmond at places like The Market at Magnolia Green. See our events page for more info.

Don't forget to register early for summer camp. Weekly full and half day sessions are available. Spots fill up fast so don't wait!

You can contact us at 804-537-2271 or midlothian@bachtorock.com and we'll be happy to answer all your questions about piano and keyboard lessons as well as all other instruments we offer like guitar, drums, voice, brass, woodwinds and strings.

The other winners from our Kids n Keys Class are all relatively new to B2R.  They have started out strong.  Their practice time is definitely reflected in their play and progress.  The first two winners are Caspien and Caleb C. (who are brothers).  Caspien is 6 and Caleb is 7.  They are taught by Jasmine on Sunday afternoons.  Caspien practiced every single day of the contest, 29 times, for a total of 455 minutes!  Caleb practiced 28 times for 415 minutes!  Congratulations to Caspien and Caleb.  For their exemplary performance, they will receive 2 tickets each to AMC Dine-In.

Tyler F. and his dad Shannon are BOTH new students at B2R.  Tyler is showing his dad how to get it done with 336 minutes over 20 practice times.  With dad on drums, Tyler killing it on the keys, the pair will soon be looking for a guitarist to rock out with them.  Way to go Tyler.   We are all super proud of you and happy that you are here, especially your teacher, Leary.  Enjoy your tickets to AMC Dine-In.

We wanted to also give Honorable Mention awards to 3 more awesome students.  Olivia and William R. together filled their home with just shy of 7 HOURS of sweet music.  Both contributed almost equally to 410 minutes of practice time over 20 days.

And last but not least, a special shout out to our YOUNGEST contestant who has been at B2R since we opened in June of 2016.  She started in our Rock City Class and has worked her way into Level 3 of Kids n Keys.  Give it up for Margaret F!

“Basically, my entire life has revolved around music. I’ve been in a number of bands throughout my life,” said Mizhir, 36.

That love for music is one of the reasons he and two friends, Dave Albaugh and Chris Wood, have invested in the Bach to Rock music school franchise. The three know each other from attending graduate school at the University of Virginia, Mizhir said... read more.

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 (B2R), America’s music school for students of all ages, has instructed over 55,000 aspiring musicians since opening its first school in 2007 and it is trending to become a $25 million brand.  The franchise’s steady growth has come, in part, because it appeals to a cross-section of eager entrepreneurs and passionate music lovers who hope to restyle the music education industry by owning a Bach to Rock music school. They are transitioning to second careers after achieving success in other professions.  Simultaneously, they see the profit potential of a sustainable franchise in a market that’s largely untapped.  Presently, Bach to Rock is comprised of 6 corporate schools and 35 franchisee-owned schools.   Nineteen of those schools are in eight Top Ten markets, ranked by population.  

“Bach to Rock franchisees are coming to us after successful careers in other professions, fueled by a passion for music and music education.  They have demonstrated success in managing something, whether that’s as vice president or president within a company or whether it’s their own business. Plus, they are involved members of their community,” said Brian Gross, President of Bach to Rock.   

Bach to Rock is profiling top franchisees to dive into this trend to inspire others about the unique proposition of becoming a Bach to Rock franchisee in a second career.

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!
