      I have been rereading the Caruso Method Book. His rule #4. says to breathe only thru your nose to “reduce the amount of muscular activity to produce a note”. Maybe it is due to my nose physiology but I can not get enough air fast enough thru my nose to play long phrases. Is this a common problem?

      Hey Tom, I’ll address this at Sunday Sessions. Breathing is slower through the nose and it sounds like you have an issue that will slow it further. Caruso isn’t suggesting you breathe through the nose when playing, it is merely a means to inhibit mouth movement when doing the exercises. Cheers
