Prodigies App Launches in...
Lifetime Enrollment Closes...
We’re THRILLED to announce that on July 31st, we’ll be launching a BRAND-NEW Prodigies App to deliver ALL 300+ Prodigies videos on Apple iOS, Android, Roku and AmazonTV!!
The new app will feature offline-sync, which allows you to download the episodes to your device for offline use!
The offline-sync ability will also put an end to our premium digital curriculum pass, Prodigies Lifetime. Prodigies Lifetime will be discontinued as of September 4th.
You can ready the full story toward toward the bottom, or checkout the highlights below!
- On July 31st, a brand-new Prodigies app will be available inside the Apple, Android, Roku and AmazonTV stores for $19.99/mo
- The new app will deliver all 300+ video music lessons from our digital curriculum, The Prodigies Playground
- The new Prodigies app will contain a crucial offline-sync feature, solving the need for our long-offered Prodigies Lifetime plan, which contains all the .mp4 downloads needed to use the program offline. Removing this option will help us protect our video curriculum better than we had been these last 3 years.
- With the offline sync ability replacing the need for downloads, enrollment in Prodigies Lifetime will close on midnight of September 3rd
- The LAST DAY to enroll in Prodigies Lifetime will be on Monday September 3rd, Labor Day 2018
- Current Lifetime Members will continue to be supported and receive all promised content and materials
- Current Lifetime Members will be granted 1-Year of app access free. Learn how to access the app here and in the future, you will receive a discount code for future use (and of course, you’ll have unlimited use of the curriculum at PreschoolProdigies.com per usual)
- Current Go & Pro Members will have app access added and connected to your existing membership and subscriptions
3 Years In the Making
Three years ago, PreschoolProdigies.com opened the doors to the Prodigies Playground, our online library of video music lessons and curriculum for kids.
The Playground launched as a streaming-only website, but our audience made it quite clear that to run Prodigies in a rural area, in a classroom with limited internet, or on a TV in their living room, the videos needed to be available offered in a downloadable format as well the streaming format.
With this in mind, we introduced a new premium digital membership, Prodigies Lifetime, to include all of our curriculum downloads for offline use. Despite being our most expensive membership, it quickly became our best-selling product. For the last 3 years, it has been the lifeblood of our company.
Prodigies Lifetime has allowed myself and my teammates to quickly raise more money than we could have with just a subscription streaming website. It also allowed us to pre-sell some of the content and series that didn’t exist when we first started. When it launched, this meant 64 videos with the hopes of another 40 or so in the future. Three years later, we’re clear past 300 videos and growing by leaps and bounds every month.
The End of Prodigies Lifetime
However, keeping Prodigies Lifetime around forever was never really the plan, or really an sustainable long-term option for us. For legal reasons, the language behind Lifetime can be inherently confusing(despite our efforts to make it clear). Beyond that, it’s an expensive means of delivering the offline-sync feature needed for a large majority of users to effectively run a music class.
Flash forward 2.5 years later, we’re close to 1,000 Lifetime Members who have helped us test, improve and build upon our initial 64 video series into 6 series spanning almost a dozen hours of music lessons, performance tracks, and curriculum.
This past April, we started to scale up our advertising budget a bit more and we were able to successfully scale Prodigies more than ever before. On May 1st, we signed an agreement with our long-time friends at Vimeo to build a Vimeo based OTT video app for Prodigies.
So here we are, 3 years to the month of when we started announcing the launch of the Prodigies Playground, and we are ready to truly begin scaling our family-company app into something bigger and more accessible than ever before. It will be available on AppleTV, iPhone, iPad, Android, AndroidTV, Roku and AmazonFireTV, almost identical to the way you enjoy Netflix or Amazon Prime Video.

If you’ve ever been toy shopping for an infant, toddler or preschooler, you’re probably familiar with the music toy section.
From the simplest baby rattle, to kid-sized acoustic guitars, to light up musical puzzles, and to “oh-my-god-please-get-this-thing-to-shut-up” keyboards, most children end up with some kind of musical instrument or toy at some point in their childhood!
While some of these toys are really interesting in their look, their design, their features or their price (“a guitar for 30 bucks… no way!”) many of them are more toy than they are instrument.
