This volume, Volume 5, expands upon the introductory exercises into more advanced exercises. In this volume, the ocarina player learns to put both chambers together in extended, full range (2 octave) exercises. These exercises build a firm foundation in the keys and key signatures that are most commonly expected of the ocarina player.
Before beginning this book, the author highly recommends a review of the Practical Daily Exercises for the Ocarina Volume 4 - For Double Ocarina available through STL Ocarina. Volume Four focused on finger exercises in the second chamber and exercises to develop smooth and efficient switching between chambers.
