I have ALWAYS wanted to be able to whistle REALLY loudly. You know that super loud, piercing whistle that can call dogs from miles away? Or get a whole group of peoples’ attention? Or call your family members from across a field? I’ve always wanted to be able to do that.
I never knew how, until now. It’s actually super easy. And I’m going to show you how!
A few weeks ago I was in Deer Valley and my totally awesome friend Rachel from A Southern Fairytale absolutely wowed us all with her ability to do this. We needed to wrangle our whole group, and it totally worked. It got ALL our attention, immediately! She completely inspired me and as soon as I got home I read up on how to do it.
It only took about 5-10 minutes of practicing to get it right, but I nearly made myself pass out from practicing so much! I practiced until my cheeks hurt so bad I couldn’t do it anymore.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how, I made a video to show you exactly how I do it. I guarantee you won’t be able to do it the first time, so don’t get discouraged. Just keep practicing and don’t give up!! :) If you want to be able to whistle really loudly, this video will show you exactly how! :)
So to recap, here are my tips:
- Press the tips of your thumb and forefinger together (like the “OK” sign).
- Press the tips of your fingers up against the tip of your tongue and curl it up and back.
- Press the corners of your mouth hard and tight against your thumb and forefinger.
- Wrap your lips around your fingers to make as small of an opening as possible.
- BLOW. ;)
*Sorry I’m so dorky in the video.
*Sorry I said blow.
*Sorry I showed you my tongue. :P
And if you had any doubts about how completely and utterly hopeless I am, here’s an outtake reel for the video above.
