Most of these melodies are rather unique compared to our other book with the most popular and simple kids songs "Tongue Drum Songbook for Beginner: Play Simple Kids Songs by Number"), but most of these songs will keep your audience listening with great interest and enjoyment.
They are simple enough for any beginner musician, even one who has never played an instrument or read sheet music. You can play immediately just by following the numbers.

We use numbers notation beside the classic music score system because most modern tongue drums have numbers engraved or painted on their keys, and because it is easier to play for absolute beginners who cannot read sheet music.
Also, we added a QR code to all songs. Follow the link and listen to the rhythm before beginning to play.

Most songs from this book are possible to play in one octave because a lot of tongue drums include and are tuned to involve the notes of the main octave.

The steel tongue drums also called the tong drum, tank drum, gluck-o-phone, hapi, yoga drum, lotus, or mandala drum) and the handpan (also called the hank drum, UFO drum, zen drum, meditation, healing, or chakra drum) are quite modern musical percussion instruments. They are primarily used to express feelings, emotions and other bodily sensations. No classical music training or musical theory study is necessary to play them. The aim is to creatively experiment with sounds in order to meditate, bring about feelings of relaxation, and have the experience of traveling through your inner self.
This book provides popular melodies to add to your experimentation.
You don't need classical music training or knowledge of music theory to play them.
This book includes very simple, popular children's and folk songs.

Attention: Songs have been transposed for a DIATONIC range. Some melodies might be changed and simplified. If you have flat keys on your instrument,please use the classic music score for piano.
