I prefer the "coach" method (less BS and more fixing the problems that exist)... it actually might be an interesting read to compare and contrast the two in another thread...
as should be the case, ebing this is an online forum, as opposed to a lesson. in a lesson, the student would have the advantage of my exaggerated demos, which are far more effective than verbal commands and physics lessons.
were we in the field, so to speak, you'd be shocked at how much differently i run a lesson than what i type here. the very best lessons an instructor will teach are to deaf people or thoise whom do not speak the instructor's langauge.
my own best lessons have been those which i taught to hungarian and romanian pupils, as i understand so little, if any, of their respective languages.
coaching's verbal, (great) instructing is largely visual.
i've professionally done both, and competed, for 29 years.
