Bach to Rock McLean, VA

Bach to Rock McLean, VA We base our method of music instruction on the knowledge that students learn best when they play the music they enjoy most. That’s why we use special arrangements of today's music to help students become proficient instrumentalists or vocalists as well as seasoned performers.

At B2R Music, individual music instruction is combined with band instruction that leads to regularly scheduled public performances, "Battles of the Bands," and recording sessions in our professional sound studio.

Songwriting: Getting Ready To Record
The final step in songwriting is making the best recording possible of your song. It takes a lot of preparation to get your song ready for the studio, so this workshop will focus on what you need to do to line up the essential components of your song so you can lay down your tracks in as few takes as possible. We will also discuss filling out the arrangement of your song with the instruments most commonly used in your genre and explain the steps for achieving the maximum level of production quality when recording.
