Using a shepherds’ whistle takes a little time to get right. To begin, place the whistle in your mouth, with the flat edge facing inward. Place your tongue against the flat edge or against the bottom of the whistle, ensuring that the hole in the middle isn’t being covered. This will create an upper and lower chamber inside your mouth, one above and one below the whistle. Once it is in place and feels secure, blow gently. It may take a few tries to get a sound out of your whistle, but have patience and try repositioning the whistle slightly to see what works for you.
