I remember during one of my first lessons with Vince Penzarella that he said "You are going to pay me all of this money and I can't teach you shit"
Getting to know Vince over the years I grew to really understand what he meant. He considers himself a provider of information and hopes to impart an approach and concepts that allow his students to teach themselves. He always said "You are your own best teacher". Sometimes when we are blessed to spend time with great teachers like Vince it is hard to imagine that we hold more control over our progress then they ever could. In the end we must all guide ourselves.
