Hello there, I'm David Morris. In 2003, I went to America and I won the title World Champion Whistler, and I'm here today to hopefully help you improve your whistling. How to whistle register.

It's very important to have a comfortable register or range. You don't want to be whistling too high or too low. My personal register or range is about two and a half octaves which I find is adequate to perform most pieces and if you are comfortable with that, to find your ideal range, you need to practice scales.

We cover this on a film on afterwards, the scale. So, don't go too high. For example, that's about the top.

I don't want to go any higher than that at all or try to go near higher than that, otherwise it's going to impair my quality of sound. This then applies in the lower range. That's the bottom of my range, so like I said, I'm bearing two and a half octaves so it's adequate to cover the pieces which I want to perform.

It's really important that you get the right comfortable register which suits you. So, once you've found your ideal register, then, work within that register. Don't try and go too high or too low, keep within it.
