CHILDBLOOM TEACHERS GO ONLINE!
In light of the present pandemic and the safety of our students and teachers, all our instructors are going online with their instructions.
Now, with the help of the internet, we can come to you! We are thrilled that we can offer this opportunity to our students who are quarantined and practicing the “social distance” dance. Being “stuck at home” is a great opportunity for growth. Students can even play for grandparents or overseas relatives!
Our present locations are closed for lessons. We also welcome returning students and students who may have moved away. Call us to continue your lessons!
Contact us at (512) 452-8765 or Email: Childbloom@aol.com.
WE HAVE 3 TEACHING LOCATIONS:
Central Austin – 4000 Medical Parkway (Near Central Market)
Round Rock – 200-A Northwest Dr. (Near 79 and N. Mays).
Northwest Austin – Plaza Cortez – 13276 US-183 Suite 201, (Anderson Mill Rd. & 183)
Hours: until about 8 pm., Monday-Friday. Home-schoolers a bit earlier in the day. We will try hard to organize a class with you in mind. We need to know when you and your child are available.
We have five great, certified and experienced Childbloom Instructors on staff. They are career educators and have been teaching Childbloom for a minimum of 10 years.
We teach our guitar lessons in small groups ($86/mo), minimum 2 kids per groups – maximum 4 (there is a 40% discount for subsequent siblings). Private lessons are available ($138/mo).
Our beginning small groups are actually BETTER THAN PRIVATE LESSONS IN SUSTAINING A CHILD’S INTEREST! Why? The Childbloom classes are great for developing ensemble skills, peers who share an interest and are in tune with a child’s attention span and learning capacity. Our classes actually IMPROVE the retention of the student’s interest. Students are grouped according to age and experience level. The Childbloom classes have been called ”learning in a positive, low-pressure environment” by leading child psychologist, Dr. Harold Grotevant.
Most of our students are beginners. Come arrange a visit and a free mini-lesson. If your child has had lessons with a non-Childbloom teacher we can determine his or her level of skill with a visit. We don’t mind spending time letting you get to know us since music education is a life-long endeavor.
If your child has a friend (or sibling) who wishes to join the class, let us know. This makes scheduling easier and quicker. But a good Childbloom class, at a time convenient for your schedule, ensures the maximum skill development for your child.
Guitar Lessons For Children in Austin & Round Rock
”What is the cost of the guitar lessons?”
There is a $35 enrollment fee into our program. When you enroll we provide 1) the initial learning materials, 2) a subscription to our parent newsletter, 3) an invitation to join our new online learning club, and 4) a great Instructor!
Tuition is $86/month for our small group classes (2-4 students).
Siblings are 40% off, so the cost of 2 children is $138. 20% of our students are siblings, which we think says something positive about our Program.
Private lessons are also available. Cost is $138/mo.
GUITARS: Yes, your child will need a guitar. We have searched the market and stock the ones that provide the best value and are the RIGHT SIZE (!) for the students. These guitars and gig bag are $159+tax.You DO NOT need to purchase a guitar from us. But PLEASE call us if you’re going to purchase one elsewhere so we can guide you in that purchase. It is very important to get the right sized instrument so your child can develop proper ergonomic skill. We’ll be glad to help.
THE HIGHEST COST OF MUSIC EDUCATION
The highest cost of music education is YOUR time and attention. We encourage a parent to attend the lessons with the child. This is very important for retention. The amount of skill a student gains depends on how long they stick with it; how much they play at home and how they concentrate when they learn. Childbloom parents who attend the lessons know what the goals are for the week to help their child. They are willing to struggle through the ups and downs of motivation through which normal kids go. The result? The Childbloom students have the longest retention rate of any music education program. And they develop awesome skill! If this is something you wish for your child, please contact us or come visit for a free lesson.
