Twinkle twinkle

Now that you’ve played all the First Notes from low D to high D and mastered Tonguing, you’ll find Twinkle easy. Just play along with the video and take your time. The tune is on page 5 of Play your Ocarina Book 1, Starting Off if you’d like to practise by yourself away from the video.

Twinkle Twinkle is not just a simple children’s song; it is also a French tune that the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart arranged as a Theme with 12 variations for Piano. Once you can play it from memory, perhaps you’d like to make up your own variations for the Ocarina.

Now that you’ve mastered ‘Twinkle twinkle’, why not try the next tune – ‘Ode to Joy’.
