    It is like making noise with a Kazoo while blowing air in the horn.

    Hum while you play.  Tricky at first, but gets easier pretty quickly.

      Is it like humming and blowing air at the same time?

        Exactly.  Practice it a bit before you try it on the horn, because at first, it is not as easy as it sounds.
