Kinderbach (Review)

We received a 3 month free membership to Kinderbach for review as part of the Homeschool Crew. First, let me state that we do not own a keyboard (shocking I know). Second of all, my husband was/is out of work for the last 2 months, and seeing as how we aren't able to buy groceries we aren't in a position to buy a keyboard either, used or otherwise. Having said that, my review is based upon the system and how it works, not necessarily the success we had in learning to play a keyboard. Although, I will say that my girls (ages 6 and 4) did enjoy watching the lessons and coloring the printables to go along with the lessons.

Kinderbach consists of 6 levels, each lasting 10 weeks in length. There is one lesson per week, and there are four segments to each lesson. You can do all four segments in one day, or break it out over the week...or revisit as necessary. The lessons revolve around Frisco and his animal friends. There are printables that go along with the lesson as well. The general "feel" of the program is very similar to "Blues Clues". The teacher contrasts against an animated background.

Cost of the online program is $7.99 a month - Billed in a 1-time annual payment of $95.88
(Great Value! Save 60%) or $19.99 monthly subscription - Billed monthly for a year (12 separate payments).

You can also purchase the Kinderbach program on DVD. The first level can be purchased for $40.45, and each additional level is $40.45 as well.

Value packages are also available and you can check those prices by clicking here.

You can access the first two lessons free by clicking here.
