Ever heard of Ocarina? All I knew was that it was an I phone application sensation. I didn’t know it was a real instrument believed to date some 12,000 years, and one of the easiest instruments to learn. Now a global phenomenon.
How do we get here?
Step one is a major step but he needs noting. Apple launch innovate i-Phone.
Step two – Smule release I Phone app at just 99c. An instrument as simple as it is brilliant.
Step three – Another one of those bedroom Youtube video enthusiasts docjazz4
is spotted for his Ocarina playing talents (the real Ocarina that is) and asked to show off what the new I phone Ocarina app can do.
Step four – Ocarina the fast selling i-phone app.
Step five – bring Youtube and Smule back into focus and we have an online competition.
Out with the old and in with the new?
How did we get here? Well I have shared the story with our Music department. Will we purchase some Ocarinas or I-phones/touches?
