You couldn't go on youtube and watch a jillion other people give their opinions on it. Heck, all you could do was go over it in your head and clear a space in your living room so you could go over it again and again, until your next class.
Do students today, especially new students, love the arts? Are they fascinated by technique as much as we were?
I see some very, very dedicated young students. They train like maniacs--in the gym 5-6 nights a week, working out on their own, studying video and books when they aren't in the gym--I cannot imagine a more dedicated bunch.
That sounds like my sons, though they often act indifferent in class.

I must admit that I have made a terrible student.
