KinderBach

Have you ever wanted to find an easy and fun way for your child to learn to play the piano? My son loves his piano that his granny bought him for Christmas a few years ago. I don't play any musical instruments and didn't know how to incorporate some type of music lessons into our studies. Then I heard about KinderBach.

Kari Gregor has come up with a easy and fun way to give young kids piano lessons. KinderBach is a web based music curriculum geared to teach kids 2-7 years old. It is broken down into 60 weekly lessons (levels 1-6) or it can be a 2 year curriculum. Each week has 4 sessions. There are PDF worksheets you can download, save, and print to go with each lesson. They can be kept in a 3 ring binder for future use. Kari teaches them through web video the basics of rhythm, note reading, singing, identifying patterns, and even how to play some songs they all love on the piano. There's lots of clapping, singing, and movement with that keeps your child moving and grooving.
Through KinderBach your kids will learn about a donkey named Dodi, and his house as well as the train station, and where they are on the keyboard. They will also learn what numbers 1-5 their fingers are so they will place them correctly on the keys. My son used that piano his granny bought him to do his sessions. The only other things needed were rhythm instruments (anything that can make noise: pots, pans, plastic bowls, wooden spoons, ect.), crayons, scissors, glue, and your printer to print the worksheet(s) for that day.
To have access to the online lessons it will cost $14.95 a month or $85.95 for a year. If you have more than one child you can use the lessons with all of them together. That's great because you are not paying per child which would get very costly. That's not the only good thing. You can try the first two lessons of KinderBach for FREE. You must have a membership to access lessons 3-60.
