General Playing Tips

- Sound each note by saying the word 'Tu' or 'Du' as you blow. This will cause a slight separation in each breath, allowing you to play each note clearly. This is also called articulation.

- When covering the tone holes, be sure to cover each hole completely so that no air escapes. Not covering the holes fully will cause you to play out of tune.

- Most ocarinas require a gentle breath for the low notes, so take care not to blow too strongly when starting off.

- Familiarize yourself with the notes that your ocarina can play by practicing the scales provided in your instruction guide or songbook. This will allow you to play more songs and give you more freedom to improvise and create your own music!
