Getting very young children interested in music

I think that the new "piano Roll" to keyboard software is fantastic and I would like to know how this could be used to bring keyboard skills to very young children and how to present this as a computer game using very simple songs and progressing both in speed and complexity. This could then be possibly transferred to music notation? Is this type of learning available to inspire our very young people? I wish that I had this opportunity when I was young

Cello

Hi All, 
I am a cellist and have been playing for over 5 years. I am looking for some fun pieces to play. I am not as far as I want to be with my playing as I've been kept back for a while now. If anyone has any suggestions that would be much appreciated. Many thanks!

Proud Songsters

This is a composition for piano and strings in the English pastoral style on the theme of birdsong. I expect most composers would use a wind instrument for birdsong, and Vaughan-Williams used the violin in The Lark Ascending, but I have tried the piano instead. I don't think the musescore audio source is working properly but I have added an audio source that uses the Salamander Yamaha C5.

By the way this is not related to the wonderful song for Baritone 'Proud Songsters' by Gerald Finzi, which is a setting of the poem of that name by Thomas Hardy. I just took my title from the poem.  

Be sure to check out my other songs.

So, I probably should have posted this when I originally added them to the group, but if you liked the previous song I shared, be sure to check out the other songs I've written and uploaded for quite a while. Links are below.

New song. Feedback appreciated.

I'm back with a new song. Link is below.

This song is by far the most difficult song I have ever written. It took me a long time to determine the exact rhythm of the chorus, and a longer time trying to match the verses and bridge with the chorus. It took longer than expected to write this song, and it was painful (considering I almost scrapped this idea), but I finally finished it. Anyway, let me know your thoughts if you give it a listen.
