Look, we know that not everyone has the time, resources or interest to devote to private instruction and buying or renting a violin, cello or piano for their kids. For these families, the ocarina is a great choice!
Guess what? It’s the main instrument behind the popular video game The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time!
Are you a Zelda fan? If so, you’ll know that everyone’s raving about the exciting release of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS. And what better way to celebrate the new game than a giveaway, right? ;)
