Learning and teaching is two way communication. Even if one of the participants is expert, even infallible there is always possibility for the other to fail for a number of reason.

I had as teachers some of the best musicians in Europe, they were also quite good as teachers. However. it took me some ten years, till I get to understand how to solve some of my high register issues. It was triggered by a 5 page preview of a daily routine that I decided to follow to the letter.

It is not that my teachers were no good, but I was not ready to understand some of their instruction. Time came and I resolved an issue that was haunting for many years in 3-4 weeks alone, with no teacher around me...

Don't blame your teachers for all your woes....they are humans, so are students.
