A piccolo player, Lillian Burkart has spent decades researching and refining the petit flute. The widely acclaimed Burkart piccolo sets industry standards, and is played in many of the world’s top ensembles. Burkart Cut: The rectangular shape of this embouchure is slightly overcut at the sides of the embouchure hole for an open, “flute-like” sound that blends well in ensembles.

The piccolo sound has a notable presence when used in the ensemble. The players ability to control it with ease is greatly affected by the embouchure shapes. To accommodate differences in the shape of the lips, use of the oral cavity, and direction of the airstream, Lillian Burkart has developed three styles of headjoint for the piccolo.
