Playing the whistle – some pointers

Hold the instrument between the lips, not the teeth.
The fingering is the same between the two octaves—to play in the higher octave, all you need to do is blow slightly
harder
The notes are written in letters rather than do, ré, mi (Do = C, Ré = D, Mi = E,…)
The high D can be fingered the same as the low D. The C natural can be played by half-holing the first hole—this can
be simpler, especially when playing the octave.
