I’ve always wanted to learn to play the piano and to read music. I haven’t, yet, but I will. My mother was in her thirties, late in college, when she finally took a music course.
One of our daughter’s took piano lessons for several months, when she was 6 years old, and even had a recital. The private lessons were reasonable, but still cost a bit. It also took some time to drive to the lesson, wait during the lesson, and drive back home. The more children we chose to have, the less feasible private lessons became.
KinderBach is the perfect answer for my young ones. Karri Gregor is the author, illustrator and music educator of KinderBach. “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Karri wanted a music program for her young children and no one wanted to enroll them because they weren’t reading, yet. As many homeschool parents would say, “the best thing to do is teach them yourself.” She had the background; so, it wasn’t a far stretch for her to do just that. Personally, I’m already stretching in other areas; so, I’m grateful she used her talents to put KinderBach together.
Karri Gregor firmly believes that children do not have to be able to read to learn piano. She teaches the notes on the piano and staff by characters rather than letters.
Bright, colorful, fun and engaging lessons. More than piano, 3 – 7 years old are given a foundation in music with KinderBach.

It was a joy to use KinderBach for this review. A big plus for my “littles” is the fact that you can use KinderBach Online with your Wii, if you have one. This made it so much easier for all of mine to see and do at the same time. We don’t have a big TV, but it’s a whole lot bigger than our PC monitor!
