JoyTunes is passionate about all things music. Our mission is to enable anyone to learn and play an instrument of their choice. We have the musical background, technical know-how and the drive to ensure that anyone, anywhere, can learn any instrument. JoyTunes was established in 2011 by CEO and Co-Founder Yuval Kaminka along with CTO Roey Izkovsky and Musical Director Yigal Kaminka. JoyTunes apps have been downloaded by more than 5 million users and 1 million songs are played each week. JoyTunes award-winning app, Piano Maestro, was ranked #1 education app in over 20 countries.
The idea of JoyTunes came to Yuval, JoyTunes Co-Founder & CEO, while visiting his nephew one day. Tom was much more interested in playing his Wii, and showing off the skills he mastered, than playing his piano. Tom’s mother could not rip him away from his game console for 10 minutes to practice his piano, with a huge argument ensuing. This is where the light bulb went off in Yuval’s head. Why not combine the aspects of video games with music? And from there – the idea JoyTunes was born. JoyTunes’ team consists of internationally renowned musicians, rock star gamers, educators and child psychologists. We are passionate about all things music and dedicate our time to creating extraordinary music apps that will motivate practice, engage students in playing and ultimately improve performance.
