Q: Am I required to have basic musical knowledge for joining the class? A: No. We will let you understand the kalimba playing techiques in an easy way.
Q: Many people say kalimba is an instrument you know how to play without learning. Then why should I join this class? A: What they mean is to play simple melodies like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". You really don't need to join us if you are satisfy with it. But we will definitely teach more than that.
Q: What is the difference between this class and other kalimba classes? A: Since there are so many different types of kalimbas (with different ranges and scales), it is hard to find a systematic course and learning materials. We hope to develop an effective system with a 17-key diatonic kalimba first.
Q: What is the background of the tutor? A: A music composer. Graduated from the Music Department of CUHK and a famous music college in Spain. Taught music courses in HKU SPACE and Hong Kong Open University.
Q: What is the difference between Mahogany and Koa wood kalimbas? A: Different woods got different timbres. Mahogany kalimba sounds warmer, while Koa kalimba sounds brighter, and it is a bit heavier than the Mahogany one.
