Bach to Rock Penfield | Kids Out and About Rochester

Bach to Rock Penfield

Bach to Rock Penfield is a locally owned and operated music school located in Penfield, NY that provides music lessons for students of all ages, instruments and skill levels in the Rochester NY area. We offer private music and virtual lessons in ALL instruments, early childhood classes (toddlers - first grade), opportunities to join a band or glee club, birthday parties, seasonal music camps, DJ scratching and mixing lessons, music production lessons and more! We offer on-site homeschooling programs!

The B2R Method

We use 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, and the technical foundation is the same. Teachers at B2R use special age and skill appropriate arrangements so that students can begin playing songs in no time. Students are motivated to learn when they see early results and have an exciting, achievable goal.

B2R Isn't Just an Ordinary Music School

We believe that learning to play music should be fun; afterall, it’s called “play” for a reason! That’s why B2R's unique curriculum couples rigorous individual instruction with band “jam sessions,” making students motivated by playing in a group. Like sports, a band builds teamwork, develops social skills, fosters self-esteem, promotes peer recognition and leads to lasting friendships.

Lifelong Skills

B2R gives kids an experience to last a lifetime! Musical skills lead to years of pleasure and fulfillment. Young people are enriched by their musical accomplishments for the rest of their lives. Some become professionals, but most achieve great satisfaction playing for their friends at social gatherings or performing together with their friends in bands that become a rewarding creative pastime.

We Start Them Young

You’re never too young to play and create music. Introducing toddlers and very young children to music, rhythm and motion supports cognitive development, learning and motor skills. B2R Early Childhood classes combine structured musical games and activities to promote learning and musical growth and expose children to the fundamentals of music.

Kids n Keys (ages 5-7)

Kids n Keys introduces children to the fundamentals of music and piano playing in a fun group-setting. Students will:

  1. Be Inspired: We believe that exposing students to great music and high-quality performances plays an important role in inspiring musical accomplishments. Each Kids n Keys class includes critical listening activities. Our goal is for our students to leave class each week feeling excited about music.
  2. Sight-read: We expect all of our students to learn to read music. The ability to sight-read opens doors to an entire world of music.
  3. Play by ear: Traditional piano instruction, in most cases, ignores this important skill. To be a well-rounded musician and, more importantly, to be able to spontaneously create music with other musicians as a group, music students must be able to play what they hear. Bach To Rock incorporates many concepts from the famous Suzuki method to accomplish this goal.
  4. Play as a group: Studying music within a group provides a unique opportunity for young musicians to begin to develop the skill of playing music with their peers. This is highly motivating because it closely resembles a “team” atmosphere and it is a social experience.
