New Standard Ocarina Course; By Margaret J. Synnberg

New Standard Ocarina Course appears to be a precursor to the Army Method. Each "Lesson" is just the standard fingerings. The major scale has graphics, the sharps/flats do not. There is no musical instruction. Instead, each note is given a number that counts fingers used to play. The rest is a small collection of sheet music that has the number tabs listed underneath.The method is effective for picking out a tune, but has little teaching value when it comes to using sheet music.
