Learn how to hold a cell phone. It is easiest to place your left hand around the bottom of the main tube and hold the instrument to you. This eases the strain on the chest and arm muscles.
Explore another way to hold an intercom: by tilting the fingers of your left hand around the valve fittings. Your left hand holds the weight of the instrument.
Know that an interphone is played with the right hand. Place your right index finger, middle finger and ring finger on the valves. The thumb goes under the pipe. Stand or sit up straight so you can breathe easier.
Practice the basic scales on the intercom so that you can learn how to get the notes right.
Tips and warnings
An interphone is a brass instrument that resembles a French horn.
The name ‘melophone’ comes from the ‘soft’ sound it produces.
This instrument is played much like a French horn: You basically blow the nozzle when you finger the valves and create different notes.
If you want to learn how to play a horn, the cellphone is a good choice for a beginner.
