Kinderbach~ Music/Piano For PreK-Early Grammar


Last year the TOS Crew reviewed Kinderbach, an online(or DVD) music/piano "class" for the youngest students. Children learn music vocabulary, note reading, rhythm, physical technique, ‘do, re mi’ singing, listening skills and music composition, as well as just plain "music-making).

This year the First Mates were included again in the review process. You can read my review from last year here.

Please note that there have been some enhancements to the site since we last saw it in early 2009:

The course has been expanded to level 6
There are some new coloring and craft/game books

More enhancements on the way...
Song book videos with two videos for each song, one "Demonstration" video, with the song being played, and one "instructional" video with a "bouncing ball".

The price:
Web Membership:
The one time payment for a year's subscription has increased only incrementally $95.88 ($7.99/month)
The monthly subscription payment option has gone up more substantially to $19.99/month

DVD Package prices are available here.

The only other thing I would change from my review last year, is that I have noticed this time around that the accompaniment is often louder than the words, when songs are being sung, so we were straining to catch them, when just listening. Other than that, I'd say that my review stands as is. :)

For new, "first time" opinions, please check out what the rest of the TOS Crew has to say.... I hope this will help you to determine if Kinderbach will be a good fit for your family, both in content and financially.
