A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The app guides kids through each step of the play option they choose. The piano keys light up as they are supposed to be played, further guiding gameplay. One of the game options allows players to change the color of the traditionally black piano keys to blue. When the keys are black, kids can see them better, but when those keys light up, the highlighting is hard to see. When the keys are blue, the highlighting is much clearer, but they blend in with the background, which is the same color of blue.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

When you start the app, it asks for your name and email address to sign up for a mailing list. You can opt out of this, but it shows up each time you run the app. Also, from the Parent's Corner on the main screen, you can tap options to order Juno Baby DVDs and learn about the company.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Juno's Piano - Learn Songs, Play with Parents, and Free Play is an interactive and educational music app that allows kids to play music on a piano keyboard. There are three main options for gameplay. Learn a Song teaches kids to play three different songs on the piano, a few notes at a time, with a large amount of positive verbal feedback. Play Together allows parents and kids to interact with the app together. Free Play allows kids to play what they like on the piano, which on this screen is ten white keys and six black keys. Juno stands above the keyboard encouraging kids to keep going. An HD version is also available for the iPad.

Is it any good?

JUNO'S PIANO - LEARN SONGS, PLAY WITH PARENTS, AND FREE PLAY is both fun and instructional, teaching kids to play songs on the piano and also allowing them free-play time. Because of the Free Play and Play Together options, this app will continue to be fresh once kids master the three songs in Learn a Song. In Learn a Song, the app teaches cumulatively, reinforcing notes in the song that have already been played. By the end of the song, kids are playing the whole series of notes. The app doesn't require the notes to be played at the right beat or tempo, merely in the right order.
