So it sounds like you're having troubles with the subholes. Make sure you are covering them all the way, and when you do cover them, be sure you aren't lifting your fingers off the main hole.

Which notes ? High or low?
What kind of ocarina do you have?
Hopefully well figure this out pretty quick.

Whoops , didn't read the subtitle.

She mentioned she had an OoT, presumably from SongBird. She also said she was having trouble with the lowest notes.

The lowest notes will be much softer. They will also require less breath. I would suggest using a tuner when you practice. It should give you the notes as you play, then just adjust your breath pressure accordingly. They have some on the App Store and in music stores.

Can't settle on an avatar pic.
Just make sure you get a good seal on the fingerholes, and oftentimes the notes you play with the subholes require a lot less breath, so try blowing more gently on those two notes. Practice, and you'll get it :)
