But what a great way to learn scales.
Enough of these shell games, now, boys and girls. Conch you be serious for a moment? I have a real valid suggestion, but now I fear it may be taken with a grain of sea salt, but I will give my suggestion anywave.
Take volunteers from the audience to try to get a sound out of it, and after you have several members come up and completely make fools of themselves, any note you play now will sound like it's coming from the master. How about that?

Note??? BigDub, I would not ascertain that a conch shell as modified to be sounded could produce any note of the chromatic musical scale. Still, I consider it a skill to produce a conch shell as can be sounded and likewise a skill to produce a sound on them. If I busked with one, I doubt seriously that what I took in would pay for a senior coffee at McD's (38 cents here).
Otherwise, run your test of the audience with trumpets but don't be surprised should it turn out as an "open mike" for trumpeters, a few who might be able to out perform you.
Kelp it coming, folks, kelp it coming.
But for some, STOP! Please!
"Concha concha choo-choo, won't you carry me home...."
I still think this is musical:

Didn't he play this with Shelly Manne?
The secret to success playing the conch is practice with your windows open at 2:00 am.
