The following was sent to me from Shion Itsuki, Milt's manager

■ Milt's ocarina Method Book will be published at the end of June 2012!  (Japanese one first)

We will publish Milt's original ocarina Method Book in late June, 2012 through Also Publishing Co., Ltd., which has published the ocarina-specialized magazine, called "OCARINA". Based on the massive experiences and knowledge about the ocarina, Milt has tried to complile everything he has to help ocarina lovers as well as professional ocarina players improve their skills with a lot of pictures and detailed explanations (including 2 CDs).  

If anyone is interested in, or anyone wants to buy it, or simply have any questions on the book, please send the email to the following address:

contact@office-itsuki.com

We will contact you with more detailed information for you!



Now you may be asking "but Stephen, why are you posting this here?". For which I have an answer! Milt needs to know how many people would be interested in the English version of his book. So please post if you are!
I have known about this book for months, and have been extremely excited to announce it :D

(If any other makers / companies are interested in announcing things on TON, feel free to let me or the other staff know)

[+] Key to number tab system for pendant ocarinas
Since this took a moment to understand (and a test), I'll explain the notation shortly( by endalion):

8 - both holes closed. (80- both left holes closed and both right holes open)
9,6 = circled hole closed, other one open. (top left hole and bottom right hole closed)
0 - both holes open
o - thumb hole on that side open.
Line length after tab indicates note lengths.
