KinderBach Piano For Children -- Learning For Fun


If your preschoolers are anything like mine, they love to make noise.  They bang on the keyboard, bang on the coffee table with sticks, and blow on any whistle they find.  Why not turn that desire to make noise, into the ability to make music?



KinderBach is a program created by Karri Gregor, to teach piano to preschoolers, and young children in general.  It provides an introduction to the keyboard, its keys, and rhythm.  Through music, games, movies, and cute cartoon characters, children learn about the piano and making music.


 


When we log into KinderBach, my children gather around.  The 2 year old, the 4 year old, a reluctant 7 year old boy, and the 9 year old.  The 11 year old and 13 year old girls navigate the website and lead the younger children in the activities.  I sit back and rock the baby, while the remaining children explore the world of music.  My preschoolers enjoy it so much, they ask their older sisters for "Dodie".


 


They've made friends with Dodie, Frisco, and Engine #9; learning where they live on the piano.  Even the reluctant 7 year old boy can be found doing a "walk" on the piano when he thinks no one is looking.  It's a fun and gentle introduction to the piano.  Your  3-5 year olds really can begin to learn how to play the piano ... without leaving the house!


 


KinderBach lessons can be accessed online, or bought on DVD if you have a slow internet connection.  There are workbooks available to supplement the lessons.  You can even try the first two weeks of sessions FREE.  There are over 300 KinderBach sessions.  Website membership can be bought one of two ways:  a one time payment of $85.95 ($7.16/month), or a monthly payment of $14.95.  That's a great value for beginning piano lessons.
