Posted by carbon (Member) at 16 Jun 2016, 10:29 PM. 20 comments

Cris Gale's ocarina method book is available for preorder and she's trying to get the word out. The purpose of this contest is to help her advertise her new book both here and Facebook and hopefully make some funny ocarina related memes in the process. Retailing at only $12.99, it's one of the more affordable and accessible method books available. It also includes an instruction video series that covers all of the main chapters.

Contest Instructions:

1. Create a funny ocarina-related graphic (appropriate for all ages) about learning the ocarina and refer to "www.LearnTheOcarina.com". The web address must appear on the graphic and the purpose of the graphic should be to encourage people to visit the website (yep you're making an advertisement!)

See these examples:

David Ramos's Method Book Kickstarter

Posted by Stephen Bobchin (Administrator) at 24 Mar 2016, 02:27 AM. 34 comments

Today our friend David Ramos (often better known as DocJazz) announced a kickstarter to fund the production of a method book for the Ocarina. David began this project in 2014, after seeing the lack of available material, and this is his opportunity to bring it to fruition. The link to the KickStarter can be found HERE . If anyone has any questions, post them here, as I am sure David will be visiting the page to answer any questions, and this post will be updated with new information as it arrives.

The US Ocarina Festival centers around the main concert on Saturday night, but activities start as soon as guests arrive in town. The official hotel for the festival this year is the Hilton Garden Inn in Allen TX. Use this link to sign in to the room block for a room discount and a discount on breakfast :

Staying at the hotel will ensure we qualify for 2 free meeting rooms for late night fun and music! Last year we had an impromptu jazz jam, ensemble practice, ocarina swaps, and brand comparisons, it was a blast. A second room had late night board games :)

Many more performers and guests are expected! If you are interested in performing, either as a professional or a student/amateur - please email me at ocarinadiva@gmail.com.
