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

  • 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.
  • FACT: The record for continuous whistling is 24 hours.
