Tamtam is a good one to look at and the OLPC is a good reference.

Along the same lines, while not Linux only and not only for audio but
entire multimedia, you should definitely look into eToys. eToys runs in
squeak, a Smalltalk-80 environment. eToys and other educational apps
have been running in squeak and used in schools for many years around
Here are some links:
Squeakland: http://www.squeakland.org/ - click on "What is Squeak" for
a good overview
eToys on the OLPC laptop: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Etoys
Articles on eToys and education:
Some info for teachers:
Very good site for French speakers (or have google translate):
Squeak main site: http://www.squeak.org/
If you would like more information, please don't hesitate to ask.
Squeak is a rich environment and I think many here would find it
engaging and fun. BTW, the latest Linux VM has an ALSA plugin.
