Ode to Joy

Learn how to play Ode to Joy, the powerful main theme from Beethoven’s 9th Choral Symphony, one of the greatest musical works ever created. The Ocarina music appears in Play your Ocarina Book 1 on page 27 and also on this video. Just follow the Ocarina charts, listen carefully and, after a few times through, you’ll be playing like a virtuoso.

This was one of three tunes incorporated in Ode to a Joyful New Star, the 7-minute long piece played by the World’s Largest Ocarina Ensemble for the Guinness World Record Title which Ocarina Workshop gained in 2013. An amazing 3,081 Primary School children and their teachers are officially record breakers! Have a go yourself…

The next piece is the well-known ‘Theme from the New World Symphony’ by Dvořák
