How does the Online Training Work?
It is an online training class designed to be accessible to you wherever and whenever it works for you. You are able to complete the assignments at home, or in a coffee shop! Any place that is comfortable and convenient for you! Once you register for the class, you will create an account to log in. Each week the training material for the week will be unlocked and you will be able to view it.

For the online training is this done at my own pace or is there a specific “class time”?
Each week on Wednesdays, you will receive an email letting you know that a new module is beginning. This will unlock that new material. You have a week to complete each assignment and post to the online forums.

If there is a specific “class time” is it on Wednesday evenings? If that is the case I cannot take the course at this time…bummer.
The new material is unlocked on Wednesdays, however you can view the material any other day of the week if Wednesday is not good for you.

How does Sprouting Melodies® compare with other early childhood music programs?
Sprouting Melodies® was founded by Meredith Pizzi, who is a Board Certified Music Therapist. Sprouting Melodies® integrates all that music therapists know about young children, development and musical responses. Sprouting Melodies® provides consistent music experiences through which the child’s overall development is supported and strengthened. In each Sprouting Melodies® class, parents are given specific tools and music strategies to support their child’s growth at home. We do not teach or provide a curriculum, but rather the information that music therapists need to better understand early childhood development and the musical development of young children. We will share a lot of information about music for early childhood and give you a framework and structure for how to organize your classes to be developmentally and age-appropriate. However, we expect all Sprouting Melodies® Providers to use their expertise and experience to lead each class by the child, and not by the book™.

As Sprouting Melodies® Provider do I have to have my own facility space or is it something that I can bring to a facility – libraries, daycare centers, etc.?
You actually can do it both ways. We encourage our Sprouting Melodies® Providers to access many avenues in order to provide Sprouting Melodies® Classes to as many children as possible

Does Sprouting Melodies® set the fees that I charge in my area?
No, we don’t do that. It is up to you to make your price point. We can support you in figuring out how to set prices in your area, but you will decide what the best pricing structure is for your area and for your practice.

Do I have to use Sprouting Melodies® music or can I use my own songs?
We consider Sprouting Melodies® to be an Open Source Model. We will share our songs with you and we encourage you to use them in your groups. We will also teach you about music and song composition that is most effective in early childhood and encourage you to use and compose new songs that will meet the needs of your groups. And we encourage you to share your amazing songs with the other Sprouting Melodies® Providers through our online Sprouting Melodies® Provider Community Forum.

How does Sprouting Melodies® make money from providers after the course work is completed?
After the online course is complete, you have the option to purchase a Sprouting Melodies® Business Package. This allows you to use the Sprouting Melodies® logos, class names, marketing materials, and structure while getting our support. You will also be listed on the Sprouting Melodies® website with a direct link to your website. With the Sprouting Melodies® Provider Agreement, you will pay royalty fees to Raising Harmony™ which are based on a percentage of your revenues through Sprouting Melodies® programs and events.
