How Much Money Can I Make?

Bach to Rock attracts franchisees who want to build multiple units

music education franchises have strong revenue streamsAlan Goodstadt and Glenn Fleischman are both passionate amateur musicians who wanted to find a way to get more music into their lives. Alan was an investment banker for 20 years; Glenn was a successful technology executive.

The two entrepreneurs recognized the investment potential in Bach to Rock and became our company’s first franchisees. They built a school in Port Washington, NY, a community on Long Island, and opened a second school in the 3rd quarter of 2014, 18 months ahead of their development schedule.

Music education franchises: multiple revenue streams

The average student at Bach to Rock takes 70 weeks of music instruction, but those aren’t necessarily consecutive. Many children take summers off, for instance, to vacation with their families. Bach to Rock has created multiple streams of revenue to maximize earnings potential for our franchisees. Here are some of the ways our schools make money:

Private lessons. Before students get into ensembles, they typically sign up for some one-on-one instruction.

Band lessons. The most appealing part of the Bach to Rock instruction method is also a moneymaker, since many parents are eager to sign up their kids for an opportunity to perform with a band in public.

Summer camps. This is how it all began for Bach to Rock, and limited-engagement summer sessions are a very popular way to introduce kids to everything our schools have to offer.

Parties and corporate events. Bach to Rock events are popular with all ages — from first-graders to 50-year-olds. They are customized for birthdays, anniversaries, corporate team-building events and more. One of our most requested events, the Karaoke Birthday Party, brings partiers of all ages into our recording studio.

Recording studio. Local bands take advantage of our full-scale 16-channel recording studio, where students also record their music. Bands often come in the mornings (before Bach to Rock classes are underway) and after lessons are over in the evenings.

Beat Refinery DJ Lessons. Aspiring DJs & Producers can learn and hone their craft right here at Bach to Rock. Group and private lessons cover mixing, scratching and music production curriculum.

Our company has been recognized among the Franchise Gator Top 100 franchises and was included in “Entrepreneur” magazine’s Franchise 500.
