How to Play 10-Note Kalimbas in C

The 10-Note Kalimba in C is a great instrument for learning, because everything you play on it immediately translates to the larger, more capable 17-Note Kalimba in C. But don’t be fooled – this 10-Note Kalimba can make plenty of music. A great kalimba to start with, no matter your age.

This graphic explains exactly why you should consider learning on the 10-Note kalimba: it is simpler, with just over one octave in the key of C. The tines are wider, with more space in between, so it is easier to play the right tine. And everything you learn can be applied to the larger 17-Note kalimba.

Currently, we have several PDF instructional downloads with a wide variety of material aimed mostly at beginners and young players of the 10-Note Kalimba in C.
