This is the first in a series of posts regarding a basic flute embouchure. Each day as you do your tone exercises you could consider if this tip is of benefit to you and build up a picture of a good basic embouchure.

Cover only about 1/3 of the embouchure hole on the flute. Most of the sound comes out of the embouchure hole so let it out and avoid over covering.

Tension is the antithesis of a good sound. It brings with it impurities and blemishes, causes problems with intonation, makes you sound like your squeezing your tone out like the last bit of toothpaste from a tube and impedes moving freely between registers.
