JOYTUNES: $5 million to Tel Aviv-based JoyTunes in a Series A round led by Aleph Capital Partners, with Formation 8 and Genesis Partners also participating. The startup has now raised $5 million. Founded in 2010, JoyTunes develops mobile apps that help users learn how to play the piano and recorder in a game-like manner. The founders claim its apps have been downloaded 3.5 million times.

Music apps have been making headlines lately: Another Israeli music startup, Tonara, recently launched a piano education app for the iPad. Chromatik, based in Los Angeles, also just gave its web and iOS app a major facelift and updated its library of music.
