• Touch combinations of holes to play notes
• Tilt to change vibrato rate and depth
• Advanced users can change keys and modes, including C-Major and Zeldarian mode

With Ocarina, you can also hear people learning to play around the world:

Have Fun Guessing

Please Read the Following

I am very fond of this app, but there are a few requests which may take a while but I still insist you do.

•More Kinds of Ocarinas
Some ocarinas have more than 4 holes. I know this seems kind of strange but I insist that there are.
I know it must take a while for this, but I request you make songs for us to play, like on Smule Piano (something like that I forget) so we can play with more joy, hearing a delightful tune from our very creation/s.
I was wondering if we could make a title for the song we make up, if whenever you make the song update you keep the freestyle!
Can you please let us have more characters to insert our names? I was also wondering if we could also have spaces. I am a Legend of Zelda fan, and I was trying to name myself Ocarina of Time, but there was not enough characters or spaces. I was very disappointed, and I still am.
Possibly you could try and update how the ocarina sounds once you upload it. I was listening to mine and it was constantly stopping. The stops were very short but continuous.

Thank you for reading this. Please consider trying the things I've listed above. Thank you.

There should be a songbook in game! Legend of zelda music free please? Thanks

Try that for language arts!


My absolute favorite instrument app

I’ve been using this app since 2009 or 2010 and it has brought my life so much joy. It’s like always having a musical instrument in your pocket. I love to pull it out and play songs for my friends. I use the Ionian and Dorian modes to play everything from Somewhere Over the Rainbow to Hava Nagila. Truly the best party trick. If you have the patience to learn the instrument there’s no way you won’t love this app.
