World Champion Whistler

Christopher Ullman is a world champion. In fact he is so good that he's even developed his own techniques.
Christopher is so skilled he is a four-time national and international whistling champion. He explains what separates an artistic whistler from the usual whistler. One factor is how high and low they can go, another is the techniques they use. For example, he can do not only the regular lip whistle, but also whistle with his tongue, as well as a number of other amusing and melodic sounds. He can mimic instruments or add other embellishments to his songs. This helps him to interpret the music in a more interesting way, which is clear from his lovely whistling interspersed throughout his explanations. He also talks about how he keeps his lips conditioned. It’s amazing how he and other whistlers have turned this routine type of sound into a unique art form.
