Playing the High Notes on an 'Alto C' (Acute Bend Technique)

Alto C ocarinas, specifically the twelve hole Alto C, require a special technique called the "Acute Bend" when playing the highest notes in the range (high D, E, and F). To use this technique, tilt your head and ocarina downward, so that the ocarina is parallel to your chest. This will instantly make your high notes less airy and much louder!
