You Will Need
Wash your hands
Wash your hands.
Shape your lips
Stretch your lips over your teeth, covering them completely.
Choose a finger style
Choose a finger style. Use your index fingers, middle fingers, or pinkies and keep a small gap between the tips.
Position your fingers between your lips so that they are in the center of your mouth. Extend your fingers into your mouth to the first knuckle and point the tips toward the back of your mouth.
Position the tongue
Flatten your tongue to the bottom of your mouth. Hold the tip a centimeter behind your lower gums.
Blow so the air travels over the top of your tongue and over your bottom lip through the gap in your fingers. This will produce a high-pitched whistle.
Adjust your fingers, tongue, and lips. Practice makes perfect.
