I would like my 8 year old daughter to learn to read & play music on a piano/keyboard. But she is not very disciplined, except with computer games. Is there any good music education software that's fun to learn with? We would plug the electronic keyboard into the midi port, I suppose.

Thanks for any advice,

Hi, Paul. I would suggest a search for ""Boopadoo"", a site with a large range of free music software designed with kids in mind. I use many of these for teaching, and also I would suggest checking the Progressive
range of teaching books for keyboards which come with a CD, which I also use with kids your daughters age and have found to be very effective.
