I purchased this as a gift. He never looked at the book, but instead just started picking out tunes. It’s been fun to hear him playing with it whenever he has a few free minutes.
Love it

My 12 year old grandson loves it. His only complaint is that it makes his fingers hurt, but that didn't stop him from continuing to play it.
Perfect!

This is a beautiful instrument. It is a Christmas gift for a 12 1/2 -year old musically inclined young man. I know he will love it.

Cedar Board Kalimba

The Mountain Melodies thumb-harp is elegantly designed and crafted in the United States from polished cedar. With the included songbook and its intuitive design, you will be playing and experimenting with your own music in no time.

Mountain Melodies

Mountain Melodies gives the gift of music to everyone—without the need to read notes. Crafted by husband and wife team Paul and Sue Bergstrom, each Mountain Melodies thumb harp is handmade in North Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains out of beautifully polished cedar. Paul and Sue have a vision to provide "music made simple for all ages," and the thumb harp does just that.

The thumb harp, or "kalimba," originated in Africa, but its unique sound and easy-to-play design have made it loved worldwide. Eight numbered keys let you play the entire C scale simply by alternating your thumbs. The sound is reminiscent of an understated xylophone, giving off a clear, sweet chime that is pleasantly soft.

An included songbook guides you to playing traditional melodies by the numbers found on the kalimba. It’s simple and fun, allowing anyone to pick up this elegantly designed instrument and make music.
