Cleveland Bella Corda Ensemble, USA The Cleveland Bella Corda Ensemble is an outgrowth of the Childbloom Guitar Program of Cleveland, a nationally recognized, comprehensive musical education program for children between the ages of 5 and up.

Begun in 1980 the Childbloom Guitar Program was the first national program to introduce young children to music through the guitar. Its goal has always been to provide children with the skill and literacy necessary to allow them to go in whatever musical direction they choose.

For over ten years, the Childbloom Guitar Program of Cleveland has been operated and directed by Cleveland native Brian Kozak. Mr. Kozak has taught guitar at Baldwin-Wallace College and Kent State University. He is a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music and Baldwin-Wallace College with degrees in Classical Guitar Performance.
