Try blowing and rolling your R's with no flute.
When you can get that going, try and make your embouchure while you do it (still no flute).
Once you get that down, then add the flute!

The bigger thing you'll encounter is that the pitch is really flexible, and you'll need to be very accuarate (because everybody can hear you!!!).

The Trevor Wye tone book gets my vote, too. I think you need to spend 20 of those 30 minutes on your sound.

I was thinking the same thing so I could add my website link (http://www.davidfreemanmusic.com) to my signature. Got it!

Opening up/making your face longer will also help to bring the pitch down.

The best flute advice I ever received was "spend half your practice time on tone."

What about asking if you can take a solo with the band?

Good luck Mike! Your tenor playing sounds really nice.
