Have you ever wished you were a musician? Millions of people would love to know how to play a musical instrument but don’t have the time or the opportunity to learn. If you are an iPhone user, however, you can quickly and easily master enchanting tunes and melodies by downloading the Ocarina app.

It turns your phone into a flute that responds to the amount of breath you blow into the microphone! Ocarina doesn’t require any musical training because it is so simple and easy to use. Your iPhone touch screen becomes the “holes” that change the notes, and tilting the device creates a different vibrato for the songs you play. Additionally, fans of the “The Legend of Zelda” can convert their music into the same keys and modes as those appearing in the popular game too.

Each song you play can be recorded and shared at the Ocarina site, which is where sheet music and tips from other users are always available as well. Users from around the world are posting their original pieces every day and the site is a great place for inspiration and sharing.

Though there are other iPhone apps that convert the device into a musical instrument, such as PocketGuitar, only Ocarina requires no special skills or knowledge to in order to be quickly playing beautiful music.

The Ocarina download is one of the most affordable apps offering advanced features, and it has become the “Top 20 Download” of all time through Apple. Amazingly enough it will cost you only ninety-nine cents to acquire.

Why not learn how to play an instrument on your lunch break today, and load the Ocarina app right now?
