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! Watch this video to learn how to learn to whistle.

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.

Lick your lips; moist lips help make a better sound.

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.

If no sound is coming out, adjust the placement of your tongue and shape of the O.

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.
