I have always been taught to breathe from the corners of my mouth, and not through the nose.
As I posted - so was I at first, but years later two respected players/teachers have told me otherwise (without actually ruling out "what works for me").
Bear in mind folks that any breathing advice from Australia must be tempered by the fact that we must breathe here through our noses or through clenched teeth due to the number of flies about.
In a perfect world we would breath thru our noses. In the real world we breath thru both, depending upon the person and the situation. Living in Houston I have a permanent sinus issue, with some days worse than others, so my breathing varies. I do use what was called a 3-step process when I learned it, but it seems this is frowned upon by the current school of thought. Works for me, so I doubt I will change.
The Hindu Yogi Science of Breath by Yogi Ramacharaka is highly touted by Bobby Shew. Bobby Shew can play, and am not aware it is out of fashion.
