TOS Review - Kinderbach

For the past few months my three youngest have been enjoying learning about music through Kinderbach for a review as part of the TOS crew. 

Kinderbach is an online music curriculum for preschoolers and early elementary-aged students (ages 3-7). All that is needed to get started is your computer and a keyboard. From there your child will be taken on an imaginative, musical learning experience. You, as the parent, don't need to know a thing about music to successfully utilize this program. :)

There are several ways to purchase Kinderbach:

  • Online - monthly subscription $19.99 or $95.88 per year. 
  • Day Pass - $5.95 for a single day
  • DVD - prices start at $40.45 for individual DVD's or buy in bulk to save money
The program currently involves 6 levels of 4 lessons per level, a 7th level is in production. Each level is designed to take 10 weeks and includes coloring pages and fun activities to accompany the DVD lessons.  Your child will learn about the different staffs, play simple songs, rhythm notes and their beat value, hand and finger position and staff note reading by pattern.

Check out this video to learn more about this program and what is needed to be successful.  You can also try out the first two weeks for free!

We found Kinderbach to be an engaging program, especially for my younger two. I heard my 5 year old singing the songs today while going about his regular life activities.  Through the use of fun characters, catchy songs and hands on activities, my kids have enjoyed learning the basics of music.

I received this product free for the purpose of reviewing it.  I received no other compensation for this review.  The opinions expressed in this review are my personal, honest opinions.

We reviewed Kinderbach last year and my daughter enjoyed it. She is now taking real piano lessons, but this was a great way to see if she was truly interested in learning and it was a great introduction for her.
