What's a Wind Whistle? (part 1)

One of my favorite, most-used, fun, attention-getting instruments is the wind whistle. 

It sounds like the wind and creates an instant calm in the class when I bring it out and begin blowing it.  The kids stop what ever they are doing and look around for the sound.  Eventually, they focus on me and I have their attention.

I keep it available during my classes and find myself reaching for it unconsciously to bring focus to a class, to create an atmosphere, to lead movement activity.

More to come on wind whistle games!


  1. Cool! I've never heard of a wind whistle, but it sounds like something I need to add to my collection. Thanks, Susan!

  2. Hi Rachel,
    It's made by LP (Latin Percussion) and you will love it! I've made good use of it in my past therapeutic sessions.

    There are other makes but LP has been my favorite.
