For me, it depends on price. I have several free method books from Giorgio Pacchioni's website, and some others. I also have method books for other instruments that are also a help with the ocarina. I don't need another method book, but if it is done well and is a good price, I would be interested. I won't be one of the first ones to jump on this boat though. I would like to see some samples and hear some reviews first.

I would love an english version. I also might get the japanese version too because I am going to learn it (taking online classes this school year) and may move there someday, and if they have different names for stuff it would be helpful.

Interested, but do we have a rough idea of the price yet?

EDIT: Just noticed there seems to be a price on the photo that Stephen attached.

2940 Yen is roughly US$37. That includes the book and 2 CD's. Having said that though, im sure international freight will push the price to around the US$55 mark

I dont want to lie and say that id be interested if the purpose of this thread is to gather what the interest will be.

Somehow with things like this everyone will say yeah im in but then when the time comes to fork out the money, everyone drops off

That depends on the price of the English version. Since there are so many ocarina resources available for free, I don't see a point in paying a lot of money for it. Especially because the first seven chapters (out of ten total) seem to be on a very, very elementary level.

But if it is something not very expensive, than by all means, I'd be very interested in it, Milt is a great ocarina player and I'm willing to bet he is a competent teacher as well.
