Book Description

We call this series “I don’t read music” since we are targeting beginners of all ages: children, teens, parents, grandparents.

Folk music traditionally is not learned from sheet music or notes. Instead, it is learned by repetition and from being passed from generation to generation. We believe in this method of teaching, which is easier and more enjoyable.

All 70 songs in this book have been written without using the classic music score system,

because it is for absolute beginner who can not read sheet music. This book is aimed for those who want to add popular melodies to their experimentation.


We use circles with numbers because most modern tongue drums have numbers engraved or painted on their keys. We do not show the note duration. You can experiment with a duration on your own.

We recommend finding each of these songs on YouTube and listening to the rhythm before beginning to play.

Our sheet music is only a guide. The most important thing is to listen and repeat the recordings.


All songs from this book are possible to play in one octave.

These songs are suitable for a diatonic 8-note tongue drum, which should have numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 1 of the next octave.

Please note: if you have a model of the tongue drum with 5 tongues, or if some keys from the octave are missing, you will not be able to play all of the songs in this book.


The songbook includes very simple, popular children’s and folk songs, but even well-known children's songs played on the tong drum will create an unusual magical sound.
