My daughter was so excited to get the chance to review the Kinderbach App ($26.99). We were able to set this up on our iPad, but you can also use it on an iPhone. She has been wanting to learn piano, and it is much too hard to take lessons on the road. So, even though Kinderbach is designed for slightly younger children she has been enjoying the chance to learn through this App.
Crew Members were able to review either the online classes or the iPad app. We chose the iPad App. I really believe this was the best approach for us. Because the App is designed for younger children, M was able to advance a little quicker through the lessons. She also did not have much of an interest in the coloring/activity sheets that are available because they are designed for younger children, but I did have a chance to see several of them and most young children would enjoy the coloring. The pages are set up where you can use an AirPrint function. You can go to Apple's list of accepted AirPrinters and print your lessons.
The Kinderbach App is set up in a manner to be both educational and entertaining. Using catchy little tunes and a really cute little donkey named Dodi. All of this combined helps to hold your child's interest while they are learning. Each lesson builds on what the child has already learned and it is set up perfectly for the young learner.
My daughter brought our iPad on the trip and had a great time practicing and playing. i personally love the convenience of having the iPad app, because we can take it anywhere, and it has the piano keys right there! We didn't have to lug around a keyboard with us! She can practice anywhere! And with the Kinderbach App we can go at our own speed and use it over and over again. You can try the first game and two lessons for free and then decide if you wish to purchase individual lessons or the entire program. Personally I would do the entire program at once.
KinderBach's App for iPad or iPhone brings the teachings of Karri Gregor to your device. The KB App features Levels 1, 2 & 3 and offers a year's worth of entertaining music education for 3 to 7 year old children through video, interactive coloring pages and games. Miss Karri introduces preschoolers to the keyboard characters with stories and fun tunes. Kids will enjoy playing simple songs, identifying music direction and pitch, learning rhythm notes and their beat value. Levels 1 to 3 cover proper hand and finger position, as well as note reading by pattern for voice, and keyboard.
