Covering different combinations of four fingerholes gives a full octave of notes plus three sharps and flats – enough for any first-time musician! The first eleven notes on this ocarina are equally easy to play. A steady breath produces a clear singing tone.
We love the simplicity of the 4-hole ocarina and the possibility of playing hundreds of tunes using just four fingers. That's why we've made it in plastic for school use and at an accessible price. In 2015, the Oc® was named BEST MUSIC EDUCATION PRODUCT in the Music Teacher Awards for Excellence.
