I think I found the secret for getting kids to play the piano...

Step 3:  Don't try to teach them at all (because then they won't want to do it).

And, as Miles would say, "VOILA!"

They've been experimenting (completely by ear) with how to make their 2 hands sound good together.  I like what they've come up with so far.
