|Learn Music and Play The Blues
The Wicked Uncle solution is a Harmonica. The instrument that made Sonny Boy Williamson, a Blues legend.
We have just got the Colour Coded Rainbow Harmonica Set. Slogan: "Learning Music made easy".
What you get is a colour coded Harmonica specially designed to learn on with 4 coloured holes, a very easy to follow instruction book and a nice box to carry your Harmonica in.
Not only is it fun, but a birthday / random gift of music will inform the parents that you are someone of culture and education. And style, because you know the Blues. And it all comes in a very nice box for £10.95.
It is good for anyone from maybe 4 up to 12 (tested on one) and it has a brilliant instruction book to learn the basic musical terms and notes with a quiz at the end. It is a great intro.
If this works, then the next step is a 10 hole Harmonica eventually graduating to a life as a Blues man with a cool name. Who wouldn't want to be called Lightnin' Hopkins, Howling Wolf or Mighty Sam McClain ?
If you cannot play a musical instrument yourself, then you should definitely buy one for you as well. Because if you can play the Blues on a harmonica, you are cooler than almost everybody.
You won't become Sonny Boy overnight, but it is more fun, and more portable than a piano.

PPs A couple of musical jokes to keep you in the mood:
What do you get when you drop a piano down a mine shaft? A flat minor.
How many sopranos does it take to change a light bulb. One. She just holds on and the world revolves around her.
There are so many jokes about composers I could make you a Liszt.
A percussionist, tired of being ridiculed by other musicians, decides to change instruments. He walks into a music shop and says, "I'll take that red trumpet over there, and that accordion." After a second, the shop assistant says, "OK, you can have the fire extinguisher but the radiator stays."
