Not sure what 'guy' has to do with it? My past DP was a visual learner - he could learn watching videos. I had to watch the video while I was dancing (on my notebook) - a point of great amusement to the studio.
Well, I am a visual learner (mostly), so I learn by watching. But since, as far as I know, both of you are ladies, your lessons would be more about ladies, where I have less use of. Therefore the guy part coming in.
