Disclosure: I received a free copy of this product through the Schoolhouse Review Crew in exchange for my honest feedback. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own and those of my family and are honest. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC regulations.
I love music and it has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up playing the piano and singing. I studied vocal performance in college. I taught piano lessons for a few years. I even used part of my wedding budget to buy a baby grand piano. And so I was thrilled when my son James told me he wanted to learn how to play the piano. The only problem was, I didn’t want to be the one to teach him. I enjoy teaching piano and I am willing to teach other people’s kids, but I think there are certain things that are better when not taught by your mom. Piano lessons is one of those things! When I heard about KinderBach and the chance to review The KinderBach Online Piano Lesson Membership with Teacher Corner, I was ecstatic.
I expected to like the program, but it’s even better than I anticipated because it breaks the learning down into really small chunks. My son has a very short attention span. The KinderBach videos are short, entertaining, and easy to follow.
My original intention with KinderBach was to watch a video and do the required activity on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. Unfortunately, the past 5 weeks have been chaotic around here as my father-in-law was very very sick and then he passed away. While we didn’t stick to the Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule I had originally planned, we still were able to get in at least 3 lessons a week because the lessons are short and easy to sneak in.
When you purchase The KinderBach Online Piano Lesson Membership with Teacher Corner, you’ll get access to all the lessons and you can watch them on your computer, iPad, Kindle Fire, Android Tablet or Nook. We used the iPad for watching the videos because in our house, everything is considered more exciting when watched on the iPad. You’ll also get access to pdfs that go along with each lesson. I printed off lessons one week at a time. There were times when my son enjoyed lessons so much that we did multiple lessons in one day. The KinderBach Online Piano Lesson Membership with Teacher Corner is geared for kids ages 3-7, however, if your kids are on the older side of that spectrum, you can probably fly through the first few weeks of lessons or you may want to do multiple days of lessons at a time like we did. I wanted to make sure that music continues to be viewed as a treat and something fun, so I let James decide how many lessons we did at a time. He almost always wanted to do at least 2 or 3. He loves doing the activities, but he is happiest when he gets to sit at the keyboard.
The price for The KinderBach Online Piano Lesson Membership with Teacher Corner is only $95.88 per year which is WAY less than you’d pay for private piano lessons. It’s definitely worth it if you have young children who want beginner piano lessons. It’s fun for kids and it’s fun for parents to watch them blossom into a little musician.
This gets my whole-hearted approval. It’s easy to use, fun for kids, and totally worth the price!
