    1. Hi Sara,

      I have yet to master the art of grass trumpet playing but I *think* you need a fairly thick blade of grass, and sort of blow it like a whistle but trumpet style. I would love to know if you manage to do it!


        1. I would be happy to post a photo showing us how to do it Natalie – if you would like to send me one.
