Re: Is it proper?

Are you really lucky?

Yes:
1 - You have a teacher who is showing you, in minute detail, how to do every part of every technique.
2 - You are being challenged by being frustrated at the end of every class; this is a valuable learning tool to help you work through frustration.
3 - You are reminded, constantly, of how good your teacher is.
4 - You now have an excellent benchmark to compare other teachers to.

No:
1 - You never get any flow or rhythm going, and your techniques are all staccato and harsh, and you over analyze every nuance.
2 - Your are simply frustrated, and it will never end.
3 - You are reminded, constantly, of how good your teacher is.
4 - You now have an excellent benchmark to compare other teachers to.

Stay and learn what they have to teach, or leave and find what you need. Simple but difficult.
