--- Designed for 12-hole ocarinas
--- Covers the keys of C Major, F Major, and G Major
--- Note patterns to help you develop control of the fine finger muscles needed to play the ocarina
I have been enjoying working with these exercises as a warm-up prior to using the STL method book volumn one for my 12 hole ocarinas. It has helped me become aware of finger change combinations I need to work on. Very happy with this purchase.S
Coming from guitar to ocarina, I really expected the finger dexterity to already be there. Alas, it is not. The two techniques are way too different, so I was struggling get my fingers in the right place. I have only played through 4 days of the exercises, but I feel very confident recommending this to other new ocarina players. It is quick too! I spend maybe 15-20 minutes TOPS running through the exercises, then I can move onto other music. I will be getting volumes 2 and 3 as well.A

While the cover and construction appear cheap, the content is great. I am new to the ocarina, and the exercises in this book are a great tool for developing proficiency. I also have Volumes 2 & 3, but I have not started them yet. I am sure they will be fine additions to the collection.
