The KinderBach Course is divided into 6 Levels. Presently, 3 of those Levels are formatted for music studio use. Each Level has 20 lesson plans for 20 to 30 minute classes. It adds up to 60 lesson plans in the 3 Levels. Following the KinderBach timeline of 2 classes per week, there is a full school year (October to May) of music education using piano as a base. Of course, the teacher does not need to give 2 classes per week. The course is flexible to the teacher's schedule. Years and years of reusable pdf books, DVDs and CDs!
Each Level of Teacher materials includes:
1) A Teacher Guide DVD – The Teacher DVD provides samples of entertaining keyboard and music instruction you can use in your classroom. Lessons are packed with activities, games, crafts, funny characters and voices. You may show any section in the classroom or just use it as a resource for teaching ideas.
2) A Teacher Audio CD – The Teacher CD has all of the songs you will need for class with performance and demonstration tracks, tonal patterns by voice and instrument, as well as music for games.
