On the flip side of things - you can see what I call Impressionistic Teaching. This is where the ‘feeling’ or direction and shape’ of a technique is described - and the step-by-step execution is left wide open for interpretation. It isn’t how I like to teach - but it is, nevertheless, a valid way to teach. The downside is that the more unskilled and less experienced can be left scratching their heads without ever having left the starting blocks - but the upside is that you are forced to think (and interpret) for yourself.
In my view - the best idea is start with a forensic approach (as is my won’t) and once experience is gained - re-look at the idea or technique through an impressionistic lens.
Just my two cents …
