  1. Air & Breath support (Tone)
    • - slow air speed=dull, thin unsupported tone
    • - wide air exhalation=uncontrolled, squawky tone
    • + Steady, focused air speed=centered and supported tone
    • - shallow, tense inhalation=dull, thin, unsupported tone
    • + relaxed, deep, natural inhalation=full, supported tone
  2. Embouchure (Tone)
    • - weak and poorly developed embouchure=dull, fuzzy, unsupported tone
    • - tight, biting or forced embouchure=sharp, small, restricted and stuffy tone
    • + correctly formed embouchure=centered and supported tone
  3. Amount of Mouthpiece (Tone)
    • - too much mouthpiece in mouth=wide, squawky and uncontrolled tone; usually plays consistently flat
    • - too little mouthpiece in mouth=small, thin, restricted ton; usually plays consistently sharp
    • + correct amount of mouthpiece=full and centered tone
  4. Air (Pitch)
    • - slow, weak air speed=unsupported tone which can cause pitch to go sharp
    • - fast, over-blown air speed=wide, uncontrolled tone which can cause pitch to go flat
    • + steady, focused air speed=centered supported pitch
  5. Embouchure (Pitch)
    • - weak and poorly developed embouchure=saggy, flabby tone which can cause pitch to go flat
    • - tight, biting or forced embouchure=thin, restricted tone which can case pitch to go sharp
    • - flute: air stream directed too far down=flat pitch; air stream directed to far up=sharp pitch
    • + correctly formed embouchure and direction of air stream=centered and supported pitch
  6. Amount of Mouthpiece (Pitch)
    • - too much mouthpiece=wide, uncontrolled tone plays flat
    • - too little mouthpiece in mouth=small, restricted tone induces biting which causes pitch to play sharp
    • -flute: too much lower lip on plate=flat pitch; too little lower lip on plate=sharp pitch
    • + correct amount of mouthpiece taken in or covered=full and centered pitch
