Our sheet music includes fingering positions, letter-coded notation, and song lyrics for a 6-hole ocarina. Although your ocarina has just 6 holes, this small instrument can produce 10 natural notes, the full range from C to C, plus D and E of the next octave and 7 flat and sharp notes: a total of 17 notes.

The fingering positions are shown in the book graphically on an image of a standard shaped ocarina with six holes. Each hole on the ocarina is represented by circles. The circles outside of the ocarina image represent the holes on the back side of the instrument. The circles filled in black indicate which holes should be covered while playing. The open circles mean they should be uncovered. The bottom circles correspond to the holes on the ocarina that are closest to your mouth. Circles on the left are played using the left hand and are played with the index and middle fingers, while those on the right side are played with the same fingers on the right hand.

As for the circles outside of the image, they indicate that your thumbs should be used on the holes underneath the instrument.

For greater clarity and better memorization, we painted each note with a certain color. We used the rainbow-color chromatic scale that corresponds to the chakra system.

However, you can have E, F, G, B, and B-flat major ocarinas, which have different fingerings. Be careful you've been warned.
