The Kalimba is an African musical instrument consisting of a wooden board (often fitted with a resonator) with attached staggered metal tines, played by holding the instrument in the hands and plucking the tines with the thumbs. The mbira is usually classified as part of the lamellaphone family and part of the idiophone family of musical instruments.
Members of this broad family of instruments are known by a wide variety of names. The kalimba is also known as marímbula and mbria in the Caribbean Islands.

Ratings and Reviews
Excellent music trainer
The sound is pleasant and accurate to my physical Kalimba, and being able to display notes on the keys is a great teaching aid. I’m just touching on the tabs function now, but can tell it’s going to be fun and educational. The song tutorials are valuable as a way of teaching chord combinations and how they can be used.
In short, I’m very happy with this app and will continue to use it daily.
Please add full music!
I really like this app! My only suggestion is to make it more accessible to practice the songs. I would really like to be able to see the entire song and not have to play through it each time to learn the next set of notes.
I haven’t figured out what all I can do with this app, but what I have done is fabulous!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
