Chris Achzet has more than 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 more. “I discovered music at an early age when the arts were still funded in schools. I played snare drum from grades 3-6 before I sat behind a full drum kit. Junior high and high school was all about playing with my buddies. Of course, we started a band,” said Chris. Fast forward to July 2021, after 30 years, 92 countries visited, and over 3 million miles flown, when Chris opened Bach to Rock/Mount Juliet to help get kids into music like when he was in grade school.
Chris attributes a couple of key factors that have led to the school’s early success. “We had a strong start. We did lots of networking and outreach prior to opening, so we had over 60 students in our first month,” Chris shared. Bach to Rock corporate provides a great deal of information and support to help franchisees. “Digest the information, know your area, and location, location, location. Once you’ve done that, it’s about putting in the effort and being passionate about it. And hire good people,” recommended Chris.
“I have had a blessed career in live music performance, and I wanted to bring the same level of passion and commitment to children in the Mt. Juliet area,” said Achzet. “Bach to Rock offers a curriculum-based music program that teaches all instruments with a strong focus on performance, and it’s really fun for kids.”
Chris’s big break came in 1987 with the opportunity to do stage assembly for Pink Floyd’s Momentary Lapse of Reason stadium tour. “Lots of physical labor and long hours, but what an experience at 20 years old. I did a couple of other tours doing stage work before moving to Los Angeles, where my efforts became focused on backline tech opportunities (drum tech),” he added.
