About Me
These notes can be used to play the song on many instruments including the keyboard, flute, recorder and piano. The piano/keyboard I use is a Casio CTK 240 Electronic keyboard which is basic but works well for beginners. My posts are the letter/alphabetical notes for many popular songs including current pop, rock, nursery rhymes, Disney, Christmas and some 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 and feedback.
