My daughter (8 yrs. old) will be starting piano lessons soon and I've been given the task of finding the piano. (My wife is screening teachers and I think I got the easier job...)

Can anyone comment on the value of the Roland FP3 and FP5 Session Partner as an aid for a young beginner? Will it make practicing more fun or will it quickly become gimmicky and tiresome?

Thanks for your thoughts!
Tom
