“We want this game to be embraced by music teachers, children and parents as a wonderful introduction to music," says Yuval Kaminka, JoyTunes co-founder and CEO. "Children sometimes think of piano practice as boring, but as every music teacher knows, practice makes perfect. Piano Dust Buster uses engaging gaming dynamics that are fun and interactive and will keep them learning and practicing."

Combining the skills and creativity of a brilliant technical team with the musical direction of content director, Yigal Kaminka, an internationally regarded, award-winning musician, enables JoyTunes to create extraordinary music games like Piano Dust Buster which help educate and train children, adults and all music lovers in creating, enjoying, and playing real music. It allows users to play popular and entertaining songs at their own pace, using their own piano, or a 3D virtual keyboard. The current music catalogue includes a variety of songs in varying degrees of difficulty - from classical to pop favorites and folk tunes, including such beloved classics as “Bach Air on G String,” “Fur Elise,” “The Entertainer,” “La Bamba,” and “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” among many others. The game also comes in two different modes – one that helps learn how to read sheet music, and the other, which is more akin to a rock band experience – creating a more fun way of learning note names and rhythm.

JoyTunes harnesses the power of video games to engage people and encourages you to practice more and improve daily. “Eighty five percent of adults surveyed wished they knew how to play an instrument, “ said Kaminka. “Now parents and other grownups can ‘dust off’ their old pianos and recapture the magic of playing music.”
