Every now and then you discover a product that is out of the ordinary. I guess it helps a lot to be part of a group like the TOS Homeschool Crew since we get the opportunity of reviewing online and physical products throughout the year.
This time around, my oldest son who is soon to be ten didn’t feel the need of sitting with his younger brothers and sister (ages 3, 5 and 7) to watch the KinderBach lesson. However, my youngest three enjoyed spending time together and learning more about music.
KinderBach is unique in itself has it uses songs, games and puzzles to teach the children aged 3 to 7 about music. Ideally, you should have a piano at home but with the digital world these days, you can download a free piano app on for the iPad and still learn with KinderBach.
Using the piano keyboard as the base, you will be introduce to a unique neighbourhood where the characters will help your child to discover the notes and the music elements.
The founder of the program has extensive background in music education, singing, visual arts, keyboarding theory as well as dramatic. She demonstrate all these skills via the innovative concept of early childhood music she has created with KinderBach.
Currently available are six levels of learning. Each levels will give more music lessons for your child as they watch it. The image below illustrate how a week is presented. Throughout the week, the child can watch the lesson multiple times and also do fun activities that will anchor the learning experience.
The learning activities will sometimes ask the child to color or write information on the sheet of paper. My three younger kids had a blast learning with Dodi and his friends and discovering the musical world. However, I find that the parent should also spend time with the younger kids to help them follow the directions
KinderBach is fun and will help your kids to learn music. I would consider getting the online version if I had only one child but if your family has more than one child, I would strongly recommend to go toward the DVDs.
KinderBach is available for the price of $95.88 US annually or $19.99 US monthly or you could purchase the DVDs for $222.88 US for levels 1 to 6.
