Designed by Cris Gale, our Aria series blends a stylish aesthetic with comfortable ergonimics to create the ultimate playing experience. These ocarinas are professional instruments that sound as good as they look.
The Aria Alto G makes a perfect first ocarina. It has a very beginner friendly breath slope, a balanced tone that isn't shrill, and won't become obsolete as your ocarina collection grows.
This ocarina is about 6 inches long, accurately tuned in the key of G Major, with a pitch range of 13 notes. It also has the capability of performing sharps and flats.
We have included an online instructional booklet, as well as a songbook, Songs by John Dowland, with this ocarina. If you would like to have a different songbook instead, simply leave a note at the "comment" section when you check out. We'll be happy to switch it for you.
St. Louis Ocarina was established in 2005 to help revive interest in the art of ocarina playing. Our ocarinas have appeared with major symphony orchestras under the direction of such notable conductors as Pierre Boulez and Michael Tilson Thomas. Our ocarinas have been used in performances with the New World Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony, Chicago Symphony and most recently, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra in their holiday concerts. Not only do we strive to provide the highest quality instruments, we are also committed to helping each of you in your path to mastering the ocarina. Whether you are a seasoned professional or are picking up an ocarina for the first time, it is our goal to provide you with all you need to continue improving.
