About Me
These notes can be used to play the song on 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, Disney and classical pieces.
 I also have a YouTube channel (Mint Music) where I make videos to assist you in your learning.
Please feel free to comment any requests, feedback and constructive criticism.

Thank you for reading and have a good day!
