Balancing the flute

Post by lexxmexx » Mon Jan 04, 2016 11:27 pm

I have a problem keeping the flute still when playing notes that do not use my left thumb, like C, C#, G3, G#3. The flute tends to want to roll off from my hands and as a result, I could not get a good tone out of it.

How should I hold my flute so that it will stay still?
