Kinderbach~ You can teach your child piano at home.

Kinderbach is an at home music program for ages 3-7.


There are 6 levels of Kinderbach. Each level can be done streaming from the internet, they have an iPad app, or you can purchase it on DVD.  Each level also has a PDF workbook to go with it.  These workbooks include pictures to color, worksheets, even things to cut out and place on the piano keys to make learning to play easier to remember. 

It is recommended to do 4 lessons per week and each level has about 40 lessons (10 weeks worth). 


Even if you as the parent/teacher/caregiver don’t know how to play the piano it is fine.  They offer a parent guide to help you though it.  It is also not super parent intensive.  You just need to print the pages for the day and start the videos.  If you child is going to be practicing on a piano, then encourage that as well.

We don’t have a piano anymore.  I did download a piano app on my Kindle Fire and had Katey use that.   However, they teach more than just piano.  It teaches rhythm, singing, and note reading, high notes vs. low notes and more. 

Katey enjoys this a bit.  She does not want to have to do it everyday or even practice on the Kindle Fire piano.  She does however enjoy doing multiple lessons in one sitting.  She has done up to 5 at a time.  And usually it is me making her get off the computer.  I like that it engages her.  It has her do things while she is watching the lessons. 

We reviewed Kinderbach last year as well. Check that out here.

The first two lessons of Kinderbach are free.  It is worth checking out. 

Online lessons start at $7.99 per month and DVD packages start at $40.45 per level.  They also have value packages.
