 Re: Doing good on clarinet and sax.....Then I tried flute......

If your aperture seems too large, try some attacks on notes using puh as the sylable. This will start the attack with a very thin aperture. Air is wasted if the aperture is too large.

An expert teacher would be a good idea, to avoid developing bad habits. Many persons teach the flute, but do not necessarily know how to play it in tune. It would be a good idea if you get to play in a band to not try the piccolo until your flute embouchure and playing is well established. A well meaning but out of tune piccolo player can seriously detune a large concert band, which can be easily heard by the audience. To play high notes, the aperture is shortened and rounded. If you play across the mouth hole, sharpness is likely to result.

May I respectfully suggest that you review my previous post on playing the flute. Take the frowning embouchure recommendation seriously. Good luck!
