You'll also note this is encouraged by the "Mystery to Mastery" website, a public site for trumpet players with video lessons. Yes, it is legitimate, has received various endorsements, and is taught by a working player. This is just another example, I'm sure there are numerous more. It's just common sense, really.

probably will start a breathing war, but I like Claude Gordon's 'Brass Playing Is No Harder Than Deep Breathing' book for the breathing concepts. It points you to need/use other Claude Gordon resources, which is cool, but the main concepts and using your lungs, chest out, instead of your belly, not only makes sense but actually works.
I meant to ask, aren't you suppose to take an 80% or so breathe with trumpet playing? (a "full breath", but not your absolute max capacity, which creates too much tension)
Now, with breathing exercises is it possible to breathe in too much? Must you get closer to your maximum capacity when doing breathing exercises? I've done breathing patterns in the past, but not consistently, as, while I can get them to feel natural, I've questioned their impact on my breathing since I've never been trained on them....
