Help needed (flute)
I’m a bit shy to start a discussion right away, since I signed up on thesession yesterday, but I really need help…
I play flute for now about two years, first had classic lessons, then switched to traditional music. I still play on my silver flute, yes, I know, many say, it isn’t suitable for ITM, but I think I will play it until I get a bit better and then buy a ,,real” wooden flute. So I played the last year, everything fine, but some months ago, everytime I played, already after one or two tunes, I get a strange pain in my left cheek, a bit sideward to my mouth corner, I can’t really describe it. I stopped playing for some time, hoped it would disappear, but it hasn’t. Maybe I’m doing something wrong with embrochure. Since I stopped classic flute lessons, I have no one to correct my position. I play alone, because I know no other traditional flute player in the area where I live, so I thought I ask you (the flute players on thesession) for help.
Thank you (and please excuse me, if this is a silly question!)
