I started off with a Gemeinhardt 72SP student model flute and just recently upgraded to a Yamaha YFL-481H intermediate model. I will be complet...

Why's it matter how your embouchure is like if you play beautifully? I play with an offset embouchure. It gives me the best sound I can possibly produce. One of my teacher's students plays with her mouth so far off, but still produces a beautiful sound. Do what's right for YOU. Listen to yourself. A...

I haven't tried other models from Gemeinhardt but I've heard that they're more reliable than, say, any other not-as-well-known brands out there.

Then, you can remove the plugs for those fingers. The thing is, don't be AFRAID to take them out. Sure, you'll sound horrible for a few ...

When you sent your flute in for servicing, did they check whether or not you had leakage problems with your pads? If they didn't, you might want to ask them to check for you. Other than that, maybe just practice long, long tones for awhile until the notes start coming back to you. Stand up striaght,...
