About Me
These notes can be used to play the song of many instruments including the flute, keyboard, recorder, piano and musical keyboard.
The piano/keyboard I use is a Casio CTK 240 Electric keyboard which is very basic but works brilliantly for beginners.
All of my posts are of the letter/alphabetical notes for many popular songs including current pop, rock, nursery rhymes and classical pieces.
 I also have a YouTube channel  (called “Mint Music) where I make videos to assist you in your learning.

Best of luck learning 'Story Of My Life' by One Direction on the keyboard, piano, flute or whatever instrument you're playing the song on.
