Children enrolled in one Kids Camp music class were recently taught to play an instrument not often seen in other classes — the ocarina.
College for Kids Instructor Deborah Goodhead teaches the Ocarina-Woodwind from the Stone Age camp each summer.
She said the last class for this summer just ended on a high note. Goodhead said her students were playing their ocarinas by the second day of class.
The video game “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time” is used to teach the class, she said.
Goodhead even teaches the camp while wearing a pointy green hat similar to the one worn by “Zelda” main character Link. In “Ocarina of Time,” Link plays an ocarina that can perform magical spells.
She said the students play the game so they can learn as they play along with the music.
