I have never really been interested in learning to play music until recently. My grandpa always wanted one of his many grandsons to learn an instrument, and since i have recently developed severe anxiety attacks i have found that keeping my mind busy helps with the attacks. I like the ocarina because of its portability and ruggedness so i can take it with me for when i start feeling jittery. I can pull it out and play a few minutes, or do finger exercises. It calms me a ton even though I'm not really good. I still need tabs to play anything that sounds like music lol so I usually just do the scales if I don't have any music with me on my 4 hole pendent ocarina, since i haven't gotten my MO poly-g yet. I can't wait till i get it so i can spend time learning it's nuances, and getting better playing lovely music. Thanks for letting me rant a little. have a lovely day.

Welcome Steven, glad you have received your ocarina and the course. I think its on page 24 at the bottom of the page are a set of notes to play which are mainly just a scale. The notes are intended to hold, until you get the sound you want from the instrument.  You can vary finger placement and  breath pressure until you get that perfect  pitch. Then hold it.  This gives you memory in both muscle and mind to create that sound again. I think its called the long note exercise. It really helped me to  get the ocarina sounding the way I wanted it to.  Its ment to hold the note about a second or two, but longer if need be.  Again welcome and hope to hear more soon. Mitch.
