NC Teen Whistles Highest Note in the World

Posted: Updated:
Pittsboro, NC - A North Carolina teen has whistled his way into the Guinness World Records.

Walker Harden, a 19-year-old sophomore at The UNC School of Arts, was added to the record books for whistling a B7, the highest note ever whistled by someone.

Harden says he got interested in whistling after he began playing the oboe. “I started broadening my interest and I started composing a little bit,” Harnden said. “Whistling helps me with composition and  basically I just started doing it all the time, and its gotten to the point where I apparently took my range up from everybody else’s.”

Harnden describes his accomplishment as “really cool.”
