Many young players have a too tight, smile embouchure with the flute high on their lip and the hole almost entirely covered. Some were initially taught the coke-bottle method of blowing straight across the hole.
On this flute, even the lowest notes use only one resonance, which gives the instrument its relatively soft, pure tone.

Most of the individual note pages have descriptions of the acoustical effects relevant to their particular fingerings.
What is the Resonance Flute Consort? To say we are a flute choir only scratches the surface of who we are. To say we play music written for flute choir is kind of the idea, but again, not quite the whole of our intention.
For flute players, our resonance comes from the same place as where singers find their resonance: our bodies. If we can make the flute and our bodies resonate as one instrument, we can produce a large, enveloping tone without overblowing.
One peculiar feature of the Chinese flute is the use of a resonance membrane mounted on one of the holes that vibrates with the air column inside the tube. This membrane is called a di mo, which is usually a thin tissue paper. It gives the flute a bright sound.
Acoustic resonance is an important consideration for instrument builders, as most acoustic instruments use resonators, such as the strings and body of a violin, the length of tube in a flute, and the shape of a drum membrane. Acoustic resonance is also important for hearing.
Beside the flute the mouth of the player is a resonance room, too. This resonance room is divided in two parts by the tongue. thus the position of the tongue makes it possible to change the timbre of the tone. Parameters of the tone building are thus the shape and dimension of the embouchure ...
