Chris Achzet has over 30 years of diverse experience in drums, backline and production management. He has worked with many famous bands and artists, such as Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Cher, Peter Frampton, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and many more. “I discovered music at an early age when the arts were still funded in schools. I played snare drum from grade 3 to 6 before I sat behind full drums. Middle school and high school was all about playing with my buddies. Of course, we made a band,” Chris said. Fast forward to July 2021, after 30 years, 92 countries visited and over 3 million miles traveled, when Chris opened up Bach to Rock/Mount Juliet to help children discover music like when he was at the primary school.

Chris credits a few key factors that led to the school’s early success. “We got off to a good start. We did a lot of networking and outreach before opening, so we had over 60 students in our first month,” Chris explained. Bach to Rock corporate provides lots of information and support to help franchisees. “Digest the information, know your area and your location, location, location. Once you’ve done that, it’s all about effort and passion. And hire good people,” Chris recommended.

“I had a blessed career in live music and wanted to bring that same level of passion and commitment to children in the Mont Juliette area,” Achzet said. “Bach to Rock offers a curriculum-based music program that teaches all instruments with an emphasis on performance, and it’s really fun for kids.”

Chris’ big breakthrough came in 1987 with the opportunity to take the stage for Pink Floyd’s Momentary Lapse of Reason stadium tour. “A lot of physical work and long hours, but what an experience at 20 years old. I did a few more stage tours before moving to Los Angeles, where my efforts focused on backline technical (drum tech) opportunities,” he added.
