Re: New here, help with tone!

Its most likely the angle of the air-stream and where it is hitting the edge. From my experience as a teacher and a performer, you probably need to get above the flute more.

thanks everyone. I can't say i have a favorite piece, I really like stuff by Gary Schocker and some new age modern stuff. I'm not into the crazy contemporary stuff really or the really old stuff either. I am also a fan of Mike Mowers and I LOVE celtic music.
