David “Docjazz4” Ramos was introduced to the Ocarina through the 1998 N64 classic, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Since receiving his first Ocarina back in 2000, David “Docjazz4” Ramos has gained a large online following with over 40,000,000 video views on Youtube. With a collection of over 100 ocarinas from the last 150 years, David enjoys educating the public on the history and development of the ocarina, as well as teaching his ocarina students how to make the most of their flutes and music education. In 2009, David initiated the first major US Ocarina Gathering, held in Seattle, WA. It was hosted by Sandi and Richard Schmidt of Clayzeness Whistleworks and sponsored by Songbird Ocarinas and SMule Inc. He also attended the 2011 Ocarina Festival in Budrio, Italy and hopes to bring a similar international festival to the United States in the next 5 years.
