This book was written to help the beginner, whether child or adult, learn to play music in a simple and easy way that requires no knowledge of reading music. Just by following the circles with letters, you will sound like an experienced musician. We made our sheet music large and as simple as possible. You’ll play cool kids songs by circles. No musical staff or notes. Playing music can be as simple and enjoyable as a game.

Some songs were adapted for a one-octave instrument. That is why most songs are simplified.

That is our goal to give you what’s necessary to play beautiful music while having fun.

This book is just as suitable for the chromatic xylophone as it is for the diatonic. Most songs in this sheet music book can be played within one octave on the xylophone using only 8 notes. Several songs need 1.5 or 2 octaves or a 10-15 note xylophone.

The 2 last songs require a chromatic xylophone since they have flat notes. For some melodies, we group circles to show the rhythm.

Most songs are simple, popular and fanny, some songs are Christian, they are perfectly suitable for a church choir or orchestra.
