Nationwide, Bach to Rock has instructed over 45,000 aspiring musicians since opening its first school in 2007. The brand delivers a twist on traditional music lessons, offering something that’s akin to team sports with a spirit of creativity and fun to inspire students. “With Bach to Rock, gone are the days of boring and solitary music lessons. Students learn to play today’s hits and jam with other kids from the start. You’ll see students paired up in groups and teams to help ignite the musical energy,” said President of Bach to Rock, Brian Gross. The Wayne school will serve students from Wayne, Pequannock Township, Lincoln Park, Haledon, Pompton Lakes, and Totowa.
Karl Kahofer is the new franchise owner of the Wayne school, and he brings over 20 years of sales and management experience in the healthcare industry to the venture. The father of two daughters, he recently relocated his family to Bergen County. He noticed plenty of sports opportunities but didn’t see a lot of choices for kids with interests other than sports. “I feel it is important that families have a welcoming, family-focused music school option as well,” said Kahofer. “Additionally, there is a lack of fun music education in our school system. My love of music and the importance of boosting the cultural development of today’s children led me to Bach to Rock.”
Bach to Rock Wayne will offer a variety of programs for students of all ages including individual and group lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drum and more; music programs for preschoolers and toddlers; beginning piano for children in grades K-2; along with summer camps and birthday parties.

The groups performed in both the Main Space and The Loft at City Winery and rocked the iconic hotspot.
“The students, who range in age from 7 to 18, and their band coaches worked tirelessly for months to prepare for this tremendous event and I’m beyond proud of all the performers,” said Bach to Rock Port Washington Director Elana Hayden. “While this is a competition, the main point is for the kids to have a great experience, to get to perform in a top New York City venue – and to have fun and feel like a rock star!”
Six seasoned music industry professionals, Carolee Goodgold (Carly Simon), John Miller (Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton), Brandon “Taz” Niederauer (Lady Gaga, Dr. John), Cameron Rasmussen (Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway), Jason Reese (Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti) and Wayne Schuster (Blood, Sweat, and Tears) judged the performances.
