Subject: RE: Why Can't I Sing With Wind Instruments?
It's a worse problem with whistles, since they often play flat high in the second octave. If you're aware of the tuning funnies of your instrument, learning when to blow harder (or for more advanced players, when to leak-finger) becomes basic technique.

Ocarina players describe their instruments as having a "breath slope" - you need to have a graph of pressure and pitch in your head to get even the simplest music in tune.
