Juno is a six-year-old girl with a passion for music. While practicing the piano in her bedroom, Juno and her two-year-old brother, Rai Rai, are transported to the imaginary, magical, musical world of Harmonia Springs. Trees are made of cellos, cars are shaped like bass clefs and lamp posts like French horns, street signs flash “Waltz” and the train that takes them on their journey is made up entirely of musical instruments.
What were Juno’s pets in the real world suddenly become her puppet friends in Harmonia Springs. Through their journeys, the characters learn new musical concepts as they sing to the original, orchestral music composed by Belinda Takahashi Ph.D.
ABOUT THE DAY THE MUSIC STOPPED
When Bunny presses the big red button on Murphy’s Shush Machine, she inadvertently silences the town of Harmonia Springs. Juno realizes that, in order to bring life back to the town, she and her friends have to create their own music through melody, harmony, rhythm and – most of all – friendship.
I watched The Day The Music Stopped with RB and CJ. The DVD is suggested for the preschool age but I think it’s be appropriate for all young childen. The graphics ware colorful and crisp. There is music throughout the DVD, carrying out creator and award winning composer Belinda Takahashi’s wish that children be surrounded by interesting and beautiful sounds and taught appreciation for music. If the puppet characters remind you a bit of Muppets, it’s because some of the puppets were done by folks from Sesame Street and the Muppets. You can choose to play the DVD in English, Spanish, or French. There is a bonus feature containing digital language flash cards, and a fun section called Let’s Interact! This is a terrific DVD for any parent who’d like to foster enjoyment and appreciation of music.
Juno Jr’s The Day The Music Stopped retails for $17.99 and is available for purchase online.
