You should be practicing what the teacher has shown or it becomes far too confusing for those practicing with you. Sorta like if you were in band and the instrutor told the band to play jingle bells but you decided to play rock around the clock because you didn't ever seem to get to play it in band.

Why dont you try talking to your instructor before or after class and asking to specificaly work on one of those techinques that dont seem to be taught during class?
