What are my Startup Costs?
Bach to Rock makes sure you have everything you need to be a success
The typical investment for a Bach to Rock franchise is $281,650 – $519,725. That includes the brick-and-mortar school, marketing for your grand opening and a startup package of musical instruments, as well as everything else you need to furnish your music school.
Our franchise schools tend to start out with one full-time music director and four to six part-time music teachers, with the aim of serving an initial enrollment of 250. As enrollment grows, you’ll add more full-time and hourly staff accordingly. With limited full-time staff and a part-time teaching staff added as needed, our franchisees can scale their business at a comfortable pace without overextending themselves financially.
We have already invested a lot of money into our unique curriculum and an ever-expanding library of songs from every genre of music. Our teaching method is like no other in the music education space today, fostering teamwork and enhancing self-esteem and, more importantly, bringing joy to a lot of kids who want to find their own inner stars. We help with marketing and offer support and training to our franchisees for special events such as grand openings. Our staff is always available to coach you on how to effectively market your Bach to Rock school.
