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 CT-S300 , and an older Casio CTK 240 electronic keyboard which are great for beginners. 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.
