A new music school in Carmel aims to teach students in a fun and innovative way. The school is at 2480 E. 146th St. and is owned and directed by Zionsville residents Andy and Jennifer Flickner.
“The concept of Bach to Rock is to teach music in a way that is really fun,” Andy said. “We want to teach kids music that they love. At the same time we want to teach them music in a somewhat rigorous way.”
The school is open to all ages and has a variety of programs for all age groups. Individual and group lessons are available in piano, voice, guitar, drum, DJ and more.
“We have programs for early childhood, toddlers, pre-schoolers and all the way through adults,” Andy said. “I have some senior citizens we’re teaching already.”
Andrew grew up playing music and even considered a career as a pianist. Ultimately, he moved on to engineering, a path he perceived as more stable.
“When my company began restructuring last year, I decided to leave,” he said. “About that time I discovered Bach to Rock. I fell in love with the concept and the franchise and started to invest and open a school here in Carmel.”
Bach to Rock also offers MyB2R, an online dashboard providing customers real-time access to student progress and more.
“Parents can monitor assignments and understand what their children are supposed to be working on and what they’ve accomplished,” Andy said. “It also features a music player where students can listen to versions of songs to which we’ve acquired the rights. It’s a great tool for practicing at home.”
Bach to Rock hosted a grand opening Aug. 18 for the community to visit the school. Guests were able to tour the school, take a free music lesson and enjoy performances by instructors.
