Folks in Mount Pleasant and the communities of Charleston, North Charleston, Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island will truly benefit from our innovative and exciting approach to music education,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross. Bach to Rock was founded on the premise that learning how to play music should be fun. And it’s proven that students learn best when they play music they love. “At Bach to Rock, students launch into learning popular favorites while our teachers expertly nurture their potential and share the fundamentals of music as they progress,” said Gross.
New Bach to Rock franchisees Brad and Cindy Dunnells are the proud proprietors of the school. “Owning a Bach to Rock school is a dream come true for us,” said Brad Dunnells. “I’ve been involved in music, theatre and development for over 20 years, and my wife Cindy brings her financial and business acumen to our team,” he continued. Brad’s experience as a non-profit fundraising executive renders him well-suited to entrepreneurship. He has worked with many organizations, building awareness and community interest. Cindy is a CPA, and excels at financial management, tax planning and compliance, succession planning and general business consulting. “It will be a joy coming to work every day helping students nurture their musical creativity, and ensuring our Bach to Rock school becomes an integral part of the Mount Pleasant community,” said the couple.
Bach to Rock Mount Pleasant will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including: individual lessons; group classes such as Rock Band; the Rock City program for preschoolers and toddlers; Kids-n-Keys for children in grades K-2 interested in piano; along with summer camps and birthday parties. Studies have shown that learning to play music in a group helps students learn teamwork, develop social skills and build self-esteem, among other benefits. Recently, Bach to Rock introduced MyB2R, an online dashboard offering customers real-time access to student progress and more. MyB2R is the only digital service of its kind in the music school industry, and provides the ability to track student advancement, schedule lessons, obtain homework and stream over 300 pre-recorded songs to practice at home.

Talented Port Kids Rock the 2022 Battle of the Bands at 89 North
In a fierce competition at the 2022 Bach To Rock Battle of the Bands, 20 bands went head-to-head at 89 North Music Venue in Patchogue, NY on Sunday, June 12th. Hundreds of proud parents, family members and fans came to support and cheer on students from B2R Port Washington. The groups competed at the iconic Long Island venue and rocked the spectacular hotspot.
"The students, who range in age from 8 to 18, and their band coaches worked tirelessly to prepare for this epic, annual event and I’m beyond proud of all the performers," said B2R Port Washington Director, Elana Hayden. “After the past two years with virtually no live performances, we were excited and beyond grateful for the opportunity to perform for a live audience at the fabulous 89 North."
Three seasoned music industry professionals, Wayne Schuster (Blood, Sweat and Tears, Phoebe Snow), Amber Ferrari (Paula Cole, Taylor Dayne), and Carl Pfanstiehl (original B2R Director of Operations) judged the performances. Close to 100 students performed in three divisions - Elementary, Middle, and High School – all rocking 89 North. "While this is a competition, the main point is for the kids to have a great experience, get to perform live - and to have fun and feel like a rock star!” said Elana.
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 on Port Washington Blvd, including music theory, instrument instruction, recording arts, performance arts, voice lessons and band coaching.
