Basic Skills of a Great Ocarina Player

Body Skills

The ocarina is half an instrument, and the other half is your body. I separate body skills into two branches: external and internal. External means that the action can be seen from the side and corrected easily. And internal means that actions occur inside of the body and can’t be seen.

Knowledge based skills

Skills that can't be acquired naturally through playing the instrument without additional study.

Practical Music skills

Skills that can't be learned without practice and performing.


General musicality is your ability to understand the language of music and use it to tell the story you want to tell.
