Your left hand index finger and chin hold the flute up while your right hand thumb and pinky keep it from rolling.

The left hand finger and chin help create a spot where the flute is supported by your head and not just your hands.

Check out youtube for videos of flutists with closups of hand position. Seeing it in action works best:

Nina Perlove - Instruction & performance

James Galway - Master class & interviews

Jennifer Cluff - Instruction
