At 10, I cut my teeth writing text adventure games in Scheme. In high school, I wrote Mandelbrot set programs on a $10 Commodore 64 from a yard sale, an HP 48 calculator, and a Java 1.0 applet. I've entered 68k machine code by hand into RAM on on a computer I built on a breadboard, and I've implemented an object oriented layer in Scheme for scripting interactive educational multimedia.

Found the "How to Listen" course at my local library. Between that and the David Lucas material, I'd say this answer has given me some good starting material.

comment Music education audio lessons
I must admit to being skeptical about the perfect pitch course. It seems to oversell itself, making rather substantial claims of being able to teach anyone perfect pitch, when as far as I know it's pretty hard to learn. Do you have positive experience with it? Has it actually taught you perfect pitch? The book looks interesting, but this question is about audio lessons, not written. The third link, for the course on great music, looks like just the kind of thing I'm looking for, though $350 for the course without being able to sample it is a bit steep. Have you tried it? Can you give a review?
