TOS Review - Kinderbach

I asked my son what he liked best about KinderBach, and he said, " I like everything about it! I like the coloring the best!"

When we first began to use KinderBach, my 6 year old son thought it was babyish

After a few sessions, he began to change his mind. I remember when he said to me, "Maybe KinderBach is kinda fun." lol

Now all I hear is how fun KinderBach is, and how we just have to buy it!

KinderBach is a fun, and easy to use program that introduces your younger children to music. It is geared towards children ages 3-7, but I am sure it can be adapted for kids a little older who have had no prior lessons in music.

We are only on week 6, but my son already knows the finger numbers, where the D keys are on the keyboard (Dodi's house), how to follow a quarter note, high and low, and soft and quiet.

Each lesson has a video that the children watch, and usually an accompanying activity, or coloring page.

My son loves the coloring pages!

They even have additional coloring books that go with the program. 

They also have additional crafts and games available. Some are available for purchase, and some are free.

They are not necessary to the program though. So you needn't worry if you don't have them. They are just fun extras. 

I have no background in music whatsoever, and it definitely would not be easy for me to teach music. Now, don't get me wrong,  I do believe that a parent can learn, or find a way, to teach their children everything they need to know. I believe that we are perfectly equipped by our Lord and Savior to teach our children.

KinderBach falls into the category of "finding a way" to teach them something.

This program is perfect as an introductory music class.

I love it because we can do music lessons in our own home. I've never wanted to go to a music class. They are expensive, and I don't like the fact that if we miss a class, we are out of luck.

With KinderBach, we can go at our own pace. We can always go back and listen to a lesson we have already done if we want to. You just can't do that in a public music class.

This program is just plain fun!

I highly, highly recommend this music program to anyone with young children.

My son really enjoys it. He asks me everyday if we can do KinderBach. I think that is the best recommendation there is, don't you?

If you are interested in KinderBach, there are actually several pricing options available.

I usually give you the prices in my reviews, but this time I am going to send you to their pricing page, so you can see all of the pricing options.

KinderBach has a free online trial option as well. Give it a try. I think your kids will love it!

Be sure to check out what my fellow Crew Mates thought of KinderBach.
