KinderBach - Music Lessons Online or DVD - Review

KinderBach is an online program to teach piano to children, ages 3-7.  The curriculum gives a solid music foundation.  The basics are presented in a fun and engaging way that captures the attention of little learners.  Kinderbach covers such topics as
  • Music Vocabulary
  • Note Reading
  • Rhythm
  • Physical Technique
  • Singing
  • Listening Skills
  • Music Composition
  • Joy of Music
This non-traditional approach uses a variety of teaching tools that covers a broad spectrum of learning styles.  Children will become friends with the interesting characters they meet in their lessons, listen to stories, do puzzles and games, sing songs, dance, and, of course, play the piano!  KinderBach provides a convenient and effective alternative to learning piano.  Explore music and a beautiful instrument in the comfort of your own home and at your own pace.  Compared to traditional piano lessons a child may go to with a private instructor, KinderBach is much more affordable.   Families find an average of 75% savings by using KinderBach instead.

Would you like to meet the KinderBach characters? I'll introduce you!  There is Carla the Caterpillar, Dodi the Donkey, Edward the Eagle, Felicity the Frog, Gracie the Gorilla, Alan the Alligator, and Bob the Bear.

You'll meet different characters as you progress through the lessons.  So, you never know who you might come across!  Of course, we can't forget about Ms. Karri! 

Karri is the founder of KinderBach.  She loves to tell stories and sing songs with your child.  Her presentations are so animated.  Your child will be up and dancing and singing along with her in no time!

But, don't take my word for it.  Watch and listen for yourself in this video from YouTube
My son (age 11) and I had fun watching the videos and listening to the lessons.  Being that he is a "tween" now, as he puts it, it was a bit too babyish for him, so he says.  He does think that a Kindergarten aged student would like it a lot though.  So, I decided to share this with a 5 year old and a 6 year old.  Needless to say they loved it!  One liked the stories and the other preferred the singing and dancing.  Both were very anxious to get finger-tapping on the keyboard.  Their mothers are already planning to purchase the program.  I think KinderBach is a unique tool for teaching music and piano.  Not only is it affordable, but I love the portability of it.  Lessons online can go anywhere your internet can take you!  Or, if you prefer the DVD option, take it on the road and play it in the car.  Each child can progress at their own pace, repeat lessons if needed or just wanted, and explore all the other interesting activities that are found at the website to complement many of the lessons.  There is no boring here with all the variety available.  You should be aware, however, that the actual use of a piano or keyboard does not come into play until several weeks into the lesson plan.  I found it to be Week 16.  So, you may want to tell your youngster that they are learning about music, rather than how to play the piano at first.

KinderBach provides 6 levels.  Each level provides 10 weeks of lessons.  That's 60 weeks total!   Karri is currently working on adding Level 7.  You can get the first 2 lessons FREE.  Just click HERE to try it out.  Or, if you are ready to get started now, just click HERE.   You'll be able to choose online lessons or DVD lessons.  Online lessons start as low as $7.95 per month.  DVD & CD packages start as low as $40.45 per month.  KinderBach also provides a wonderful selection of songbooks, crafts and games all at low prices.  Some of the crafts and games are even free!  Best of all, KinderBach offers a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee!
