An very easy solution for you,would be Ryhthmbox on your k12ltsp server
and install all the plugins for it. AKA: mp3's wav's wma. She can "
preview" her songs via Rhythmbox.  Buy a 30$ usb / mp3 player at walmart.
Make a directory in her home folder /music. Dump all her songs into her
/home/user/music folder. Import through Rhythmbox( Import Directory).Plug
in your new super duper usb drive / mp3 player in your thin client.
Copy from her home folder /music to your desktop icon "USB /
brandname".You've got the Linux mp3 player only more versatile than her
friends Ipods,,,:)

If you are wanting to rip cd's you'd have to do this on the server,with
Sound Juicer .

Sidenote : If you need to convert whatever format <audio>, to MP3 for
example,you'll need to install Mencoder,which is easy to use after you get
acclimated with the terminal interface.

Take Care,
