Whistling: Three Methods

  1. 1

    Purse your teeth and clench your jaw Make your lips into the puckered shape of someone you're about to kiss. Make sure the space between your lips is narrow and round. [1] Notes will be produced as your breath passes through this vent.

    • Saying the number two aloud is another effective lip exercise. "
    • You shouldn't press your lips against your teeth. They should be flexed ever-so-slightly forward, however.
    • Before you start whistling if your lips are dry, lick them. A better sound quality could be the result.
  2. 2

    Slightly curl your tongue. Lift the very tips of your tongue. To make different tones when whistling, you have to change the shape of your tongue. [2]

    • Putting your tongue against your lower teeth is a good place to start if you're just getting started. You will need to change the shape of your tongue to produce different tones, but with practice, you will be able to do so.

  3. 3

    It all starts with a few deep breaths and the decision to blow air over your tongue and out your lips. Softly blow, adjusting the curve of your tongue and the size of your lips until you can produce a distinct tone. Don't give up if you need to practice for a minute or two. In all likelihood, it will take some time. [3]

    • Don't make a loud noise; instead, make a soft one. When you figure out the best shape for your lips and tongue, you'll be able to whistle with much more volume.
    • If your lips dry out while you're practicing, wet them again.
    • Take note of how your mouth is shaped when you read a note. Please describe the precise position of your lips and tongue. The key is to keep practicing after you locate the correct note. Attempt to blow more forcefully to keep the note going.
  4. 4

    Tongue placement can be adjusted to produce a variety of other notes. To produce higher notes, try moving it forward, and to produce lower notes, try moving it up from the floor of your mouth. Whistle your way up and down the scale by practicing. [4]

    • You'll notice that when you lower your jaw to make low sounds, your chin drops as well. If you want to make low sounds, you'll need to expand your mouth. When whistling low notes, you may even stoop your head.
    • Whenever you're singing or playing an instrument in a higher register, you'll notice a slight tightening of your lips. Whistling a high note requires you to raise your head.
    • Perhaps your tongue is pressing too hard against the roof of your mouth, causing you to hiss instead of whistling.

  1. 1

    Keep your mouth closed. The top of your lip should be pressed firmly against your teeth. Your lower lip needs to be pressed firmly against your lower teeth. It should appear as though you are smiling despite having no teeth. A cab can be called from a distance using this position because the resulting whistle is extremely loud and noticeable. [5]

    • You can get the perfect lip placement by using your fingers to position your lips. [6]
  2. 2

    Hold your tongue in Put it where its widest part is parallel to your gums and its flattest part is just behind your bottom teeth. It's okay to have a tiny gap between your tongue and bottom teeth, but don't let them touch.

  3. 3

    Blow over your bottom teeth and lip, crossing your tongue as you do so. Focus your exhalation on your lower teeth. The tongue should experience a downward force from the air. At the point where your upper and lower teeth meet, air will rush down and across your teeth and lip at an acute angle. That makes for a very distinctively resounding noise. [7]

    • Exercising and practicing with this whistle is necessary. Whistling in this manner causes mild muscle tension in the jaw, tongue, and mouth.
    • To speak in a loud, clear voice, practice spreading and flattening the tip of your tongue.
    • Keep in mind that your tongue's natural resting place in your mouth is roughly at the same level as your bottom teeth.
  4. 4

    Try your hand at making different noises. [8] Whistle sounds can be altered by moving the tongue, cheek muscles, and jaw around in different configurations.

  1. 1

    Figure out which fingers to use. When you whistle, you press your lips together with your fingers so that you can make a clean sound. Every person has their own preferred method of whistling, based on the fingers they use. If you have particularly large or small fingers or a particularly wide or narrow mouth, those factors will influence where you put your fingers. It's worth thinking about the following possibilities[9]:
    • By pointing with the index fingers on both hands
    • Making use of the middle fingers on both hands
    • By means of the tips of your little fingers on both hands
    • Employing only one hand's thumb and either the middle or index finger
  2. 2

    Form a "v" with your fingers facing downwards. Put your fingers together in an upside-down "v" shape, whatever your preferred finger arrangement may be. As the "v" narrows, your fingers move closer to your mouth, which is at the base of the shape. [10]

    • Be sure to wash your hands before you put your fingers in your mouth
  3. 3

    Put the "v" under your tongue's forward most point. If you put two fingers together, they should meet just under your tongue, at the back of your teeth.

  4. 4

    Put your fingers to your lips and close your mouth. A tiny gap should form between your digits. [11]

    • For a more focused tone, try closing your mouth over your fingers to restrict airflow to the space between your thumb and index finger.
  5. 5

    A hole must be blown through it. Using this method, you should be able to make a loud, shrill noise, ideal for attracting the attention of passers-by or calling your dog home. Repeat this process until your fingers, tongue, and lips are in the ideal position to make a full, powerful sound. [12]

    • To begin, you shouldn't make too loud of a noise. Build up your air pressure until you hear the desired sound.
    • Experiment with various digit configurations Some of your fingers might be too small to make a sound if you try to whistle over them, but others might be perfect!
