What you need is a flute teacher. Took me way too many years to figure that one out.

Work with a dedicated teacher on embouchure development (on each instrument). That will truly quicken the time it takes to develop the embouchure correctly.

I teacher who specializes in that instrument would be ideal. If your teacher is a doubler, make sure that they have had some professional or collegiate training on that instrument, not just "I picked it up and started playing it." There are few doublers that I would trust with embouchure development of a secondary instrument, but the ones I would trust have higher degrees in Multiple Woodwinds.
