ya... I agree.... college is supposed to stretch your brain... and life... 
so if it hurts you to learn theory, that's just you growing. Anything that 
hurts your brain will benefit you when you get past the pain. After you 
realize that, you just learn more and get excited when you don't know 
something... cause it's another thing you can wrap your head around.

studying with only one teacher boot camp style, while a good thing for all 
the reasons Rick said... is in no way a replacement for a great music 
school. totally different thing.

I took a semester off from college after my freshman year to come live in 
NYC and study with all my favorite NYC guitar players.... it was great. 
stretched me in a different way than college... they're not the same 
though... totally different situations.
