As a doubler myself, I find this site a useful wealth of info , articles and links.

If you are relatively new to flute, pay very close attention to the articles on posture, hand position and embouchure formation.

Also google Nina Perlove. She does some great things, although I have to disagree with her flute position info... I go for the roll it slightly forward and move the head joint backwards a few degrees. ( I like the modified Rockstro alignment...)

All depends on lips, teeth, jaw etc., so no one size fits all.

Anyway, it is good to become familiar with all the philosophies and understand where and why they work better or worse under specific conditions. Any student we have might benefit from those distinctions, after all.
