Parent Testimonies

About Our Educators

Listen to Parents talk about the Childbloom Guitar Program:

”The one thing I’ve told …several friends…just how amazed they’ll be at how much they learn so quick and that the kids love it just as much as we love.”



”What attracted me to the Program was that it said it catered directly to children.”

”The group lesson and the idea that the parent is the…. guide…dynamite!”




”What we liked instantly was when she came home that first night she could play something.”

””..He can grow up with this program. I like the idea to think that when he’s getting into adolesence this is something positive that he will have.”




”Your kids drag out the guitar when grandparents come over…they’re really proud of that you know… ”

”The fact that they could play a song so quickly.. ”


This was an encore piece at the GFA festival performance – a favorite of all who learn it.
