    When we start to build breathing the most important issue is freedom from tension. I consider EXHALING to be the goal, not "pushing air through the horn". Any activity to move to other partials is not good until that relaxed breath is down cold.

    GREAT MINDS! That is kinda what I said by recommending the incentive spirometry, blowing up those little blue balls is s amazingly good at enhancing exhaling. And example:

    Before incentive spirometry: exhale
    After incentive spirometry: EXHALE
