why choose Childbloom
Childbloom Instructors are Specialists
We don’t “happen” to teach children. We specialize in teaching children. The Childbloom Program was made for young people age 5 and up. You can feel confident that your children will be given the best opportunity to learn, grow and cultivate their talent.
A History of Success
The Childbloom Guitar Program began in 1980. It was the first national program to introduce young kids to music through the guitar. Our goal has always been to provide kids with the skill and literacy necessary to allow them to go into whatever musical direction they wish.
Childbloom Instructors are Licensed by the Childbloom Company. All Instructors are vetted through a background check, reference interviews and skill audition.
The Childbloom Instructor training includes (but is not limited to):
- Training in child-development models, which helps the teacher understand the child’s ability to grow musically;
- Curriculum training to understand the Childbloom materials and how they are appropriate for musical and technical growth;
- Physiology of the hand and skill of guitar-playing so the student can learn proper ergonomics to avoid injury as the student matures.
The Childbloom Difference
Vetting and Training
You can trust a licensed Childbloom Instructor to be a responsible mentor for your child. All Childbloom teachers are vetted through background checks, interaction with references and personal interviews. They are trained in child-development, and caring and proper behavior around children.
Parents are always encouraged to attend the lesson. Childbloom parents receive the Childbloom Monthly Newsletter which deals with the many challenges of practice and motivation that occur over the course of a growing child’s life. Parents agree that the newsletter is an important help. Your teacher will be an important resource for your child’ growth.
The Childbloom Program’s materials have been carefully constructed with children in mind. Your child will experience learning victories right from the start. They can grow into monster musicians! You will see it happen!
Because we most often teach in small groups, students develop social bonds that encourage their progress. The high retention rate of Childbloom students is unique among typical music lessons. Students also learn ensemble music right from the beginning. This develops their musical mind at an early age and integrates their social needs as they move into the teen years.
The Childbloom Program is typically the most affordable entrance into music lessons you can find. Even though ours is a high-value program we encourage our Instructors to price at or below the market price to allow the greatest number of families to participate.
