In all fairness, my nephew, Jonathan Delvecchio, deserves to be acknowledged here first and foremost. If he hadn’t taught me how to whistle with an acorn cap during a walk in the woods of Western Pennsylvania Seashellmusic.com would not exist. The acorn cap whistle skill is the fundamental skill needed to make sounds with small – medium size seashells. So a big thank you Jonathan! Neither of us could have dreamed in 2002 that twelve years later I would be writing about a new family of musical wind instruments I had discovered. Well, they say life began in the sea. It appears Music did also.
