Kinderbach ~TOS Review

<span class=

I have always wondered if KinderBach would be something my preschoolers would enjoy, so I was very excited when given the opportunity to review it (I received a 3-month, free trial for my honest review). My older two will be taking piano lessons at home, beginning next month, and I have been searching for a good music program for my preschoolers...I found it!

KinderBach is a simple, fun, & effective way to teach piano skills to your children (ages 2-7). Through the use of online video sessions or lessons by dvd, your child [& you] will learn .
Learning is gradual and child-paced so you can go as slow or as quick as your child needs. KinderBach uses playful 'piano pals' to teach note reading, rhythm, singing, and composition. My 2 & 5-year-old LOVE Dodi & Carla the Caterpillar the best!

KinderBach offers a solid curriculum that provides a solid music foundation...Basics are basics and KinderBach covers them using language children understand. Youngsters will learn music vocabulary, note reading, rhythm, physical technique, ‘do, re mi’ singing, listening skills and music composition plus the joy in making music.

This became a daily lesson that I was able to work into our 'preschool time'. The lessons are short, approximately 10-15 minutes total [with the bonus activity sheets]. Long ago I purchased a music set that included rhythm sticks, so the little girls and I used the sticks to learn rhythm and it was great fun! We use the other instruments as well and they love our music time together.

One feature I LOVE is the fact that each music lesson ties in the 3 R's ~Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic! How? overlapping and enhancing basic math and language skills into each lesson. It makes my life easier, because I am not only teaching music, I'm also covering math and early literacy through fun, age-appropriate, hands-on activities that focus on music. I'm ALL for multi-tasking!

To use the program, you will need the following:
1. Piano/Keyboard [plain keyboard is fine]
2. Computer - for viewing web video lessons and/or printing activity pages
3. Hi Speed Internet or a DVD player
4. CD player (optional)
5. Craft materials - Scissors, printer paper, crayons, markers, craft paper, glue etc...for activity sheets
(examples below)
