Curious that even though looking at my blog, I can't find no post has mentioned Sonic Pi, and soon we will see the version 2.0 of this free program that allows development to teach programming through music...
With Sonic Pi you'll be able to teach some programming concept through a simple programming environment, ideal for starting from the earliest age.

Still do not know what new features will have this new version, but in the article on The Mag Pi last month you can read a full article.
