TOS Review ~ KinderBach

image_thumb[9]As part of the Homeschool Crew, Montana and I were given the opportunity to review the on-line version of Kinderbach, which is an at-home music program designed to teach young children, 2-7 years olds, the basics of playing the piano.

Each lesson is led by Karri Gregor, the founder, who uses fun characters like Dodi to engage your child.  Within each of the 6 levels there are 10 weeks of lessons to explore.  Each lesson is broken down into weekly lessons with 4 short sessions of animated videos with  piano playing practice.  A 47 page activity book is included with each lesson. You can view the first few lessons here.KinderBach-SampleLessonVideo

Upon completing all 6 levels you will have had 1 to 2 years of music instruction using video instruction, coloring pages, worksheets, and fun physical activities.  A very important thing I should note is that you do need access to a  piano or electronic keyboard, but a toy keyboard works well with this program so do not sweat it too much.

KinderBach is a fun, creative, and interactive way for young children to enjoy introductory piano lessons.   Each short lesson includes watching playful characters as they introduce music concepts such as rhythm, note reading, singing, and composition.image_thumb[5]

KinderBach is available as a subscription which you can view online or as a DVD series. For on-line learning you have two options, pay $19.99 a month and commit to a year long membership, or get a “day pass” and get in as much learning as you can in a 24 hour period.  However, right now it is even more affordable to get KinderBach into your home. Use the  coupon code TOScrew2012  and you will get you 30% off through February 2, 2013!

I thought this program was really excellent and worth giving a shot if you are  looking to provide piano instruction for your children.   Like I said before, just make sure you have access to a keyboard or piano to get the most out of the program. If you or your child is scared of clowns, be warned that the teacher sometimes dresses up as a clown. Montana and I give this program 2 thumbs up! She really had a great time learning the ins and outs of the piano. Check out what my Crewmates thought by clicking HERE.
