Whistle Tutorial - Lesson 1.2

 

Holding the Whistle

 

Holding - GIFPlace the tip of the mouthpiece in your lips. If you can, just use your lips and avoid biting the mouthpiece.

Grip the whistle with your left hand and cover the top three holes with the pads of your first three fingers. Your thumb will probably be behind your index finger or your middle finger.

Now cover the remaining holes with the first three fingers of your right hand. Again, your thumb will probably be behind your index finger or your middle finger. Try to have a firm but relaxed grip.
