New Junoís Piano App Teaches Children (and adults!) Piano Playing Basics
The Juno Company, which specialises in the creation of innovative and musical education products, this week launched a really delightful-looking app called Junoís Piano, which provides children of all ages with a unique and fun way to learn the real-life basics of playing piano.
The universal iOS app, ideally suited to the iPadís larger screen, of course, features Juno, the main character of the award-winning series Juno Baby and Juno Jr. It has three modes (Free Play, Learn a Song and Play with a Parent) and aims to break down some of the traditional barriers facing children who are trying to learn how to play the piano. Junoís Piano lights up the on-screen keys, guiding children to press the correct keys and play with different colours representing the note, ensuring a fun and enjoyable learning experience. Your childís progress will also be encouraged by cheers and praise from Juno, and he or she can sing along with the piano playing to their favourite Juno Baby songs.
The Juno Company was founded by mother, composer and Ph.D. Belinda Takahashi, and is dedicated to inspiring a lifelong love of, and appreciation for, music in children. Itís probably best known for its Emmy-award winning Juno Baby line of products and the Juno Jr. line. With the strong belief that beautiful music enriches lives, The Juno Company, in partnership with the National Head Start Association, donates a music education DVD to a child in need for every Juno product that is purchased.
