    This paper describes the design and evaluation of an interactive computer environment that envisions to contribute to young children's musical learning. The intent is to stimulate the child's inherent musical abilities by engaging the child in active musical interaction with the environment. The design of the environment is inspired by an existing preschool music education method and uses knowledge from several research areas. In this paper the design choices are motivated. The paper also describes the prototype that has been developed of the interactive environment and the results of a Wizard of Oz experiment.
