For me it isn’t one way or the other it’s where we are placing our emphasis.
Take for example the first drill in each key, passive tonguing , which I find to be the most difficult one to execute properly.
I’ll blow air balls on the top note I’m trying to tame till the cows come in for milking if I don’t ” kick ” it a few times to get the motor running.
Of course just like my old motor bike I no more kick it over and get it running on both cylinders than it dies and I have to kick start again a time or 2 till it warms up and I can go on to the next drills where both approaches are utilized and developed.
