Re: [school-discuss] Piano for kids

I don't know if this helps, but less complex are Solfege (MIDI-based music training), Jazz++ (MIDI sequencing) & the DAW Psycle (Windows-only) ... these are all FOSS & are much simpler than Rosegarden & Ardour, etc.

Having said that, it might help to take a look at the Linux-based Studio To Go & Musix distros. Musix has come a long way & the CD-bootable STG demo is absolutely stunning. Both work right out of the box on a variety of platforms.

If I recall correctly, other posters on this list have conducted  gradeschool MIDI/DAW classes using Musix.

If I had all the time in the world, this would be one of the Tux4Kids
style apps I'd try and write. :(
