Mouth Embouchure:


As per the video included above, the flute will require you to develop the mouth embouchure (lips shape) to be able to make a clear sound on the flute. This takes time and training to develop, but with consistent practice, you can be making sounds quite quickly and then develop the sound to be stronger and more reliable over time. I have developed 2 training videos to assist you to practice the correct mouth embouchure to play these flutes.
