Then he should learn to write notation.

The solution is surely not to have a program printing what he played, 
esp as he can't even verify that it did it right.

There are many other benefits from learning to read:
* a new world of dynamics, articulations etc might open up.
* you can easily check out styles that are far from what you're used to
* you'll experience music theory as you play

Although many composition teachers tell you compositions should sound 
improvised, I firmly believe that working a bit on the improvised 
composition might make it work better as a composition.
