Kinderbach has a series of videos online with four sessions per week. Right now there are six levels, but Kinderbach is working on a Level 7 for future release. Additionally there are PDF books to download - they are full of activities to cement learning and have instructions as well. The videos have cute characters (each key has a "piano pal") which introduce different music concepts -such as note reading, singing, rhythm and more. There is also a music teacher who is pretty enthusiastic. You can GO HERE for a scope and sequence.
Student can get through several lessons in one sitting. The videos are short and sweet - mostly in the 3-7 minute range. I found that sitting with Noodle worked best since every time I left him on his own he became distracted. The program is suggested for a few minutes each day, 4 days a week.
You can try a free online trial HERE. You can also try a Day Pass for only $5.95 to see if it will appeal to you or your kids. Once registering for the program there is a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. For Web based lessons (over 240 lessons) and the PDF downloads, the cost is $7.99 a month, paid for all at once for $95.88. That's a savings of 60%. OR you can get a $19.99 a month monthly subscription (billed once a month for 12 months). Also available, if you don't want online lessons, you can purchase DVD's which range in price from $55.95 - to $222.88. In my opinion, it is very affordable for what you are getting.
I have never looked in to what regular sit down with an instructor piano lessons cost, but I imagine it is more than $7.99 - 19.99 per month. This program is a great value if you want "private piano lessons."
Here is a fun video to check out too!
Oh, and for you iPad folks Kinderbach is working on something for you too!
