Ken Bain, Doing the Discipline

Ken Bain discusses the fact that we do not have to “stuff the student’s brain full of facts” before they can start “doing” the discipline they are studying.  His example is the piano teacher.  The teacher does not tell the student they cannot play the piano until they learn to play the piano.
