Kinderbach {Schoolhouse Review Crew}

KinderBach is one of those programs I have wanted to try for awhile now. When Little Bit learned about the possibility of reviewing it, he was ecstatic!

KinderBach is an online piano curriculum for young children (specifically ages 3-7), which uses fun characters and songs to make learning fun. Each lesson is short, and includes games, printable activity sheets, and uses a piano keyboard.

There is an app you can try for free (only the first couple lessons), which I loaded on to Little Bit's iPod. He immediately fell in love with it! That only heightened his anticipation! I also managed to find a new keyboard at a very inexpensive price.

KinderBach Piano Lessons use playful characters to teach note reading, rhythm, singing, and composition. One of Little Bit's favorite characters, I think, is Dodi.

Little Bit enjoys the activity pages as well. We learn about Dodi's house, and about the train station, which refers to the black keys on the keyboard.

A couple screenshots of the lessons:
Even though this is designed for 3-7 year olds, and Little Bit is 10 (but with his developmental/learning delays, he seems/acts much younger than 10), he has been enjoying KinderBach so much! He gladly and eagerly does two or three lessons a day, rather than just one.

He is anxiously looking forward to actually being able to play the keyboard. I think he feels a bit impatient for that to happen. We are blessed to have a 6 month subscription, so we'll see how far we are actually able to get during that time.

If you have young children who are eager to learn music, and especially how to play the piano/keyboard, be sure to check it out! It really is a lot of fun!
