I had the opportunity to receive and review this beautifully made 2 disk set of The Tuneables containing the I love Music, 30 minute animated interactive DVD designed to teach kids music fundamentals. The set also contains The Music Box: I love Music! companion cd which reinforces the curriculum in the DVD. I figured this set would help me cover music in my homeschool teaching which is I why I wanted it, but you don’t have to be a homeschooling family to enjoy or learn from The Tuneables.
“With The Tuneables, adults don’t need special knowledge about music in order to teach it to their children. Parents and educators can download free companion guides that provide in-depth information about their child’s learning and how to expand the musical experiences provided in the DVD.”
The Tuneables set is geared for children ages 3-8 and is priced at $29.99. Downloadable versions, including HD are also available. A Music Box CD can be purchased separately for $14.99 and is available for download as well.
My boys have enjoyed it and I’ve even caught one or both singing the parts they’ve memorized. I look forward to using it more with them. Enjoy the short video of one of the songs. You can review more clips on Youtube or visit The Tuneables website here and meet the characters.
The Tuneables is created by the Music Intelligence Project (MIP) which promotes the best approaches to music education for children and “is grounded in years of teaching experience, proven techniques and materials, insights gained from research on music teaching and learning, and recent advances in the understanding of brain development as a function of music learning.”
*I received my Tuneables set for free to do this review. Opinions are my own.
