Childbloom training gives you the tools for joyful and economically successful teaching. The CHILDBLOOM brand gives a teacher a unique and advantageous presence in the community. Because of that powerful brand, Childbloom Programs have a competitive edge in the music education marketplace.
researched and Proven Curriculum works with young people
The Childbloom curriculum was especially developed for success in teaching a high-skill technique to children ages 5 and up. The Childbloom method began by consulting human development models and music education research. No other guitar method has done that. From the youngest’s pride in competency to the teenager’s expanding social horizon, the Childbloom curriculum combined with the Childbloom structure, is truly engaging for young people of all ages.
Taking advantage of new research in learning and brain plasticity, we have developed online practice resources for students to aid in their bio-mechanical development with over 200 play-along curriculum videos, interactive flash cards, technical exercises, theory and more.
More Value for your time Through the Childbloom System
The Childbloom training allows guitar instructors to access an eager clientele – children ages 5 and up. The Childbloom BRAND allows a teacher to stand apart in a competitive environment. Childbloom Directors are not just run-of-the-mill guitar teachers. The brand communicates specialized training, a history of success, an effective program and an image that sets it apart. Being a Childbloom Director is a career. If the demographic is large enough, Childbloom Directors may also sponsor or hire other Licensed Instructors to teach their Childbloom students..
The Childbloom system helps the teacher maximize the value of his or her teaching time, teaching up to 8 students per hour successfully. This allows the Childbloom Educator’s hourly income to increase proportionally and yet be cost-competitive in the marketplace, reaching more children and expanding the potential socio-economic market. The Program was developed by guitar teachers for guitar teachers and their students. The Childbloom Guitar Program has remained strong for 40 years. The reason: its economic design, its operational function, ongoing training and culture of excellence it develops among students.
the childbloom system allows 10 Weeks Off Yearly!
If you are private instructor already, you know the economic insecurity associated with teaching music lessons: no income during holidays, month-to-month fluctuations due to absences, snow days, students missing lessons, etc.
The Childbloom system solves many of those problems. Childbloom provides income stability. No need to worry about losing all your income during Christmas holidays and summer. The Childbloom system allows you to schedule your students and take up to 10 weeks off yearly without your monthly income declining.
Maximize the Value of Your Time – part time with full time income
The Childbloom program is designed to be part-time work. The typical schedule of teaching is less than 5 hours per day. You will make your own schedule. No need to create lesson plans or extra material for your students. The Childbloom curriculum is all you will need. We have unique online resources of curriculum lesson plans and teaching ideas for teachers to use at a glance and bring into their class. You will have time for practice, performance, school, other work or pursuits of happiness.
MORE Income Stability and Opportunity THAN ANY PROGRAM
Besides tuition income, Childbloom Program curriculum creates other income opportunities. Here are some that our entrepreneurial teachers use and develop:
- Enrollment Fees – These fees for the initial enrollment material which includes a monthly newsletter and a subscription to the online Childbloom Learning Club that all new Childbloom families receive upon enrollment create an additional resource for the teacher.
- Stable income through innovative payment structuring – The Childbloom system has taken the instability out of much of the economics of the private music-teaching profession. This client-friendly structure makes it easy on both clients and teachers.
- Curriculum sales. – One of the most labor-intensive and costly parts of music instruction is the development and/or purchase of curriculum for the student. The amount of income generated from materials sold to a typical student will usually cover the marketing costs (and more) to generate that student! We have a convenient online store to order wholesale materials.
- Other income generating opportunities. Many Childbloom Directors develop other value-added sources of income. Ensembles, rock bands, recording classes, theory classes and camps are some of the sources are made possible through the Childbloom Program. These not only take advantage of the robust and valued culture that can be created, but contribute to developing that culture!
- Childbloom Company bonuses. The Childbloom Company offers its Licensees bonuses for quality in teaching, effectiveness in student generation and teacher referrals.

Childbloom students have excelled in both pop, indy, country and art music styles. Here is a video of an 11-year old young indy talent.
