Technically that is very easy. It is basically throwing away information :)
All sheet music programs I am aware of offer midi export to one degree or another.

What program do you use?

MuseScore has an option for that, but it uses a service on the internet.
You can export midi from MuseScore

My Niece needs a song done in 2 days. She just asked me last night. I figured first find the sheet music as I couldn't find the midi files anywhere for it, then use something to convert the sheet music to midi.

Usually I'd do it all but can't in 2 days.

What file format are you talking about? From the context I assume PDF.

Try https://audiveris.kenai.com/ but if, and that is a big if, it results in anything, make sure to double check everything it dir by ear.
