How to Learn to Whistle

You'll never have to hum along to your favorite tune again. With a little practice, you'll be whistling in no time!

You will need

  • Lips
  • Breath
  • A mirror

Step 1 Make an O Shape your lips into an O. Make sure to leave a small opening for air to pass through.

Step 2 Blow Place the tip of your tongue behind your bottom teeth or against your bottom gums. Keeping your tongue in this position, blow air through the O.

Step 3 Repeat Repeat blowing through your lips while maintaining an O shape. It may take a while before you hear a real whistle, so practice a few minutes a day in front of a mirror.

Step 4 Make different sounds Once you are able to make a decent sound, adjust your lips, tongue, and the amount of air you blow to whistle different notes.
