A Very Diverse Collection of Some Very Nice Irish Songs, with Lyrics
Adil Ahsan 27.12.2017
I should say that they have made a really nice collection of songs. Some are easier to play than others, and I personally wouldn't have gone with pictures of sheep as a cover photo, but the content is quite nice. I really like the different kinds of songs that you get to play, the notes are quite good, it has has lyrics for the songs in case one is drunk enough to start singing while playing the ocarina, it might be difficult, but one can always try... :)

It's a beautiful collection, of some really nice songs, with a great deal of detail gone into the preparation of such a fine book. However, don't buy it as a teaching book, buy it as a song book.

It also contains a brief introduction to the Irish history, some information on how to play the 10-hole ocarina, and a very small introduction to the music theory.

Almost all the notes have key positions below them, in case you were inclined to use them.

Also, some songs have keys for both, an Alto C Ocarina, and an Alto G Ocarina, so you can play them as a duet, though i'm not sure why anyone would want to... Sounds like a lot more work... :)

But you have the option of trying both out and see which one sounds better to you, on your ocarina, with its particular keys.

Also, some of the songs, can be found on Johann Rotter's (the author's) youtube channel. So you can also see how they are meant to sound.

Overall, a really nice book, and a really good, rich and diverse collection of some wonderful Irish songs.

Ein schöner Querschnitte
WoLutt 20.09.2021
Das Notenheft ist ein schöner Querschnitt irischer Musik für die Ocarina. Nicht zu schwer, für Einsteiger. Wer noch nie Ocarina ausprobiert hat, aber für Blasinstrumente Begeisterung findet, sollte sich eine kaufen. Wunderbarer Klang! Damit lässt sich irische Musik gut interpretieren. Das vorliegende Notenheft eignet sich gut zum Ausprobieren.

Eine schöne Melodieensammlung, die nicht nur für den Okarina-Spieler interessant ist sondern auch für andere Instrumente spielbar ist.
Schön die Griffsymbole, sie machen es dem Anfänger sehr leicht.
Ich habe mir die Literatur über Okarina gekauft, weil ich als Kind mal eine Okarina geschenkt bekommen habe. So wollte ich mich mal über dieses Instrument schlau machen.
Zudem war ich an einer Melodiesammlung zum Thema Irland interessiert, da ich auch Spaß an der Folklore aus diesem Gebiet habe.
Insofern die Schule (s. meine Beurteilung ebenda) und diese Notensammlung für mich ihren Zweck erfüllen.

Muy buena edición
Miguelocarina 05.06.2019
Había comprado el libro para mi pero en seguida me di cuenta que es perfecto para enseñar a alumnos tanto de ocarina como flauta en Do. Son melodías conocidas y la notación está muy bien conseguida.
Las mayoría de las piezas son de un nivel de principiante o alumno medio, pero las jigas y reels del final necesitan de un control más rápido y preciso del instrumento.
