San Francisco, CA—January 18, 2010— The Juno Company, an emerging media publisher specializing in the creation of innovative and musical education products, announced today the release of Juno’s Piano , an app that provides children of all ages with a unique and fun way to learn the real-life basics of playing piano.  Juno’s Piano is available on the Apple App Store® for iPhone®, iPod touch® and iPad®, at the introductory price of $.99.

Juno’s Piano takes a fresh spin on musical learning by introducing how to play the piano through Juno, the main character of the Award-winning series Juno Baby and Juno Jr. The app features three modes (Free Play, Learn a Song and Play with a Parent) and breaks down some of the traditional barriers confronting children when learning to play piano. Juno’s Piano lights up the on-screen keys, guiding children to press the correct keys and play with different colors representing the note, ensuring a fun and enjoyable learning experience. Juno’s Piano  encourages your children with cheers and praise from Juno and your child can sing along with the piano playing to their favorite Juno Baby songs!

“As part of our new series of edutainment apps from The Juno Company, Juno’s Piano provides children with a fun learning tool,” said Barrett Cohn, CEO of The Juno Company.“Look for many more great apps from The Juno Company in the upcoming months.”
