Here, here, Andrea! At 8 years old, will be a piece of cake for your son to learn to read music. And it is really handy to be able to do so! Playing by ear will definitely happen (and should) but don't neglect the importance of reading the written note. It is thus that you can compose, and preserve centuries old music. And it makes playing by ear alot easier.
