I'm trying to learn the flute embouchure for an irish (wooden) flute for 2 years now. My teacher mentioned to me that because of the shape of my lips (I'm having a teardrop in the middle of my upper lip):
This little piece of flesh always gets in the way when I try to form a small, well shaped hole that a stable air stream can be pushed through. Is there a way to learn the flute embouchure even with this condition of my lips? The "standard" embouchure with the hole directly in the middle of my lips doesn't work.
