The ocarina was my first musical instrument at the age of four. Twenty years later, I now have a music degree and am teaching the ocarina to whole classes – thank you Ocarina Workshop.

I can read very little music and didn’t play anything until I was 35 . . . I am amazed I can teach ocarina-playing.

I am so thrilled with my Infants. They are such stars! I wish I had found ocarinas 30 years ago. Even those who find other lessons difficult succeed with the ocarina.
