Embouchure placement is not a sure thing.

If you have grown up, and you’ve taken lessons, and you’ve played for a long time, yet you’re still not happy with the sound that you’re getting, think about your embouchure and its relationship to your lip.

I thought for so long that, “hey, that’s how my embouchure goes. That’s how the flute fits onto my embouchure. It’s there. It’s cemented. Something else has to happen in order for me to improve my tone.”

I finally found a teacher that taught me that what we need to do is experiment with that embouchure placement.

Experiment with the angle of which I am blowing.

If I blow at 3 different angles, I have three different sounds. It’s going to change how I’m going to sound by just moving the angle of which the air is being split.

You can also experiment with moving the flute up on your lip, or even down, depending on the size of your lower lip. That lower lip can really dictate what you need to do in order to get a better sound.

But start experimenting with that. You will find that you can get a better tone when you find the right place for your embouchure and mouth shape. It can change the world for you as far as tone is concerned.

Try this and let me know if your tone improves.

Have Fun!
