|Dear Mr. Ogawa,|
It has been about six years since you allowed me to buy one of your ocarinas, and i want to thank you again for your kindness to me. I am married now, but my name was Chris Lamb when I got the ocarina.
Life is hard sometimes, but i have always found joy in playing my ocarina, and music has become very important to me over the years. Being able to express myself musically is a precious gift that I am very grateful for, and so I thank you again.
I hope someday to do great things with ocarina, as you have. When I have more time to devote to learning, I would like to make ocarinas also.
Earlier this year I had the honor to perform on a CD that a friend of mine was recording. As a massage therapist, she wanted to expand her business by recording some relaxing music for meditation to sell to her clients. She liked the sound of your ocarina so much that she insisted that I play for the CD. She sings, and though it is our first musical endeavor, we had fun and learned a lot from the person who helped us record and produce the CD on his keyboard and computer. I would like to give you a copy of the CD to say thank you for making this possible.
Also, I would like to purchase another ocarina from you. If you have a bass ocarina available, I will buy it. I play my big F most of the time, because I like the timbre of the lower notes on your ocarinas. El cant dels ocells is my personal favorite of your mp3 collection. Your work is truly an inspiration.
Thanks also to Suimin. I hope you are well. Best wishes to you both.
|First of all, I want to thank you for putting in the time and effort to post such invaluable information here on this website. I was quite disappointed to hear that some people out there have been plagiarising.|
Ever since I was little I enjoyed playing music by myself. My musical experience involves playing the trumpet, and I have found that resonance control in the ocarina have things in common.
As you have mentioned in the Ocarina room, it seems true that the Ocarina is not difficult to play at a rudimentary level, but extremely difficult to play it well. But this is good news for me - I have just begun this new adventure, and there is so much room to grow and improve!
At current, I don't have much of a choice but to use the commercially available Ocarinas. But one day I am hoping to have accumulated enough knowledge on clay craftsmanship and Ocarinas to make my own. Your own Ocarinas are also an area of great curiosity, and I hope to be able to save up for one in the future.
|Your website is inspiring to me. I have wanted to play the ocarina for years, and I am going to be beginning soon. Your website, and the songs you've played for us on it, capture my view of the ocarina very well, though I've never played it... I feel from hearing it and holding it, it is one of the most "natural" instruments there is.|
Thank you so much for showing this part of yourself, and for providing information on the ocarina. You've inspired me to begin playing.
|I was looking for a website to learn how to make an ocarina for my children and I found your website, is very easy to understand and the kid enjoyed all the process to make their own instruments. Thank you. Japan is an wonderful country!|
|I am really surprised to see a website on Ocarina, for years I wanted to get informations on that. But today I found many things about it. I appreciate the author of this webpages. I wish to buy one if possible or available in my country. I would like to know the cost of it. I am happy to hear the samples too. |
Thanks so much.
|Hi I was hoping you could help me in an ocarina choice. I have decided I want to play the ocarina and know what songs I wish to play on it. However I do not know which ocarina will be best to play these songs. If you would kindly give me an email address, so that I can send you a clip of that song, perhaps you could advise me on the best ocarina to buy. Thank you for your time,and great website! The ocarina music here is amazing, beautifully played.|
|Hi I just found out about your web site and it is really good. I never knew that the ocarina could be played so well! I'm amazed! |
Question:Will you have a Mp3 for Ave Maria soon?
I have the music for my five hole ocarina and I would like to hear how wonderfuly it can be played.
|Thank you for comment! |
There is a sheet of music of two pieces of "Ave Maria" in "My Toy box" of my web site. There is a file of midi there, too, but there is not a performance of Ocarina. I am happy if I become your reference.
