Beginners usually blow harder on the second octave causing it to sound sharp. With the flute, you don’t blow harder to get the second octave; you adjust your embouchure by tipping your head up or down slightly, or by rolling the flute toward or away from you. Blowing down into the hole makes a note flatter, and blowing across the hole makes it sharper.
