DMT at Midem 2013 – Joytunes, next generation music education apps

An interview with JoyTunes, the next generation of Music Education Apps. On the first day of Midem 2013 I catch up with Yigal Kaminka, co-founder and content manager of the start-up JoyTunes. The company produces a suite of iPad apps that aim to change the landscape of music education. The way music is taught has remained relatively stagnant for the past few hundred years: by creating apps that understand the sound of real instruments and can provide feedback to students while they play, JoyTunes is not replacing the role of real teachers but complementing it beautifully, balancing real educational aspects with games and competitions to encourage engagement.
