Christmas Songs and Gospels for Kalimba. For Absolute Beginners

Number-coded Sheet Music

About the Book

Are you a beginner who wants to play Christmas songs, hymns, folksongs,

and spirituals but have never played music or cannot read sheet music?

Don't worry!

With our simple, picture-based sheet music, you can start playing immediately.

The songs and melodies have been adapted especially for beginners,

using number-coded circles instead of musical staff or notes.

The sheet music is suitable for 10-17 note kalimbas and the most modern kalimbas

already have engraved numbers and letters representing the name of the notes.

The notes become higher as you move away from the center and alternate from right to left.

The songs cover two or three octaves and we use dots to indicate different octaves.

The standard 17-note kalimba contains 3 octaves:

1) a full 2nd small octave,

2) a 3rd small octave, and

3) 3 notes from the 4th small octave.

The 2nd small octave goes from C4 to C5 and is depicted in our sheet

music as simple numbers. The notes from the 3rd small octave have

numbers with one dot above each number. The three notes C6, D6, and E6

in the 4th octave are indicated by numbers with two dots above them.

The numbers and dots will help you to begin to play immediately.

Follow the numbers and enjoy the music!

Note: Some melodies have been changed and simplified for a diatonic range.

Christmas songs are a unique music genre traditionally associated

with the celebration of Christmas. They can be divided into several categories,

including carols, hymns, and secular songs.

Carols are songs that are typically religious in nature and tell the story of the

birth of Jesus Christ. Hymns are sacred songs that are sung in churches during

Christmas services are often more contemplative in nature.

Secular Christmas songs are those that are not specifically religious in nature but

are still associated with the holiday season.

Regardless of the specific type, Christmas songs are an important part of

the holiday season for many people and are often enjoyed by families and friends as

they come together to celebrate the occasion.
