Bought 2 for my teen son, a trumpet player. He and a friend will be playing these as a duet for an indoor tea party. Easy enough for them to just pick up and play. When the event is over, i have hopes that he will be able to teach my little girl to play it.

This is a toy and should be considered as such. I bought these for my kids who are into the Zelda games. It can be used to play some simple melodies from the games. I have bought other ocarinas in the past, and this one is not as versatile as the other ones with higher quality.

This things is bad, the sound is awful, it basically is not even playable. Save up and buy a better one for around 30 and up.

        This is the only Ocarina MusiciansFriend currently carries. It is a cheap plastic toy that leaks air and sounds terrible. Look for a better quality Ocarina elsewhere, this one will just frustrate anyone trying to learn.

          when i was looking for some ocarinas i bought by its price but when i started to play got a lot of flat sound and not the exact note that i was looking for i would say this is only for collector and kids to introduce them to music

                  Comments about Grover-Trophy C Alto Ocarina:

                  My kids wanted an ocarina so they could play the songs from Zelda. I had no trouble at all finding sheet music, chords, and instructional videos on Google and YouTube. The only down side is the appearance; like some unfinished plastic component. The craftsmanship is sturdy and it looks like it will last for some time, but more colors or decals would be an improvement.

                  Comments about Grover-Trophy C Alto Ocarina:

                  My girlfriend really wanted an ocarina so while I was making a big order from Musician's Friend I figured this thing was SO cheap that I couldn't go wrong.

                  Well, I went wrong. As most of the other reviewers have stated this is a piece of junk. It's poorly crafted, cheap quality, and the shoddily molded halves don't join correctly so it's extremely difficult to play it and have it make sound.

                  If you take your fingers, the ones you should be using to play this ocarina, and use them to seal the many molding imperfections across the seam, it actually doesn't sound that bad. The downside of this technique is that you can't actually play it because your fingers are occupied.

                  It's really more novel or decorative than anything because it doesn't actually function out of the box as an ocarina.

                  I guess I'm going to have to try to seal up the seams so it cam maybe be played.
