Since I'm out of town for Anime Boston this week, I asked my friend Matthew to film this week's episode in my place. Check out his unique insight into the world of ocarinas and let me know what you think!
My buddy Evan and I filmed this collab at the end of our 2014 West Coast tour last July. I had never seen the film, and after watching it the last night of the tour, we filmed this the day I left for home :) If you enjoyed it, please give it a LIKE, SHARE, and leave a comment to let us know what you thought!
Thanks for watching and please let me know what you thought of today's episode! If you'd like to chat about this stuff in person, I'm going to be at several cons next month including Anime Boston, Midwest Media Expo (Detroit), C2E2 (Chicago), and the Budrio Ocarina Festival (Italy). Hope to see you at one of those cons!
In today's lesson, we learn the first note for your left hand, as well as how to better support your ocarina and more music theory. Let me know what you think of these lessons so far!
In this week's episode, we're learning the first five pitches for your 10 and 12 hole ocarina. Leave a comment to let me know what you thought of this week's lesson and I'll see y'all on Tuesday for our lesson 4!
This video has a LOT of info in it this week, so leave a comment below if you have any questions! Also, come visit me at PAX East this weekend in Boston! I'll be at the Songbird Ocarina booth (#1237) all weekend, so come say hi and pick up an ocarina!

Here is the introduction to my first OcTalk series - How to Play Ocarina. This first series will be specifically for 10 and 12 hole ocarinas (since they're currently the most widely used), but I plan to do a series on pendants, doubles and triples, and possibly inlines and harmonies in the future!
Is anyone else psyched about the Majora's Mask release tomorrow? After posting my tutorial for this song on Tuesday, I just had to do a cover myself for #NewMusicThursday! If you'd like to learn it too, check out the link in the description :D
As requested, here is the extended tutorial for Stone Tower Temple. Check back every Tuesday for new episodes of OcTalk!
In today's OcTalk, I teach you how to play all the sharps and flats on your ocarina. Check back every Tuesday for new episodes, and please check out my Patreon page to help support the show and get more learning materials to help with your ocarina playing!
