A while back an interviewer asked what I would do if I had three months of free time. Without hesitation I said "I'd take piano lessons." I've been hacking away on pianos since I was a kid, but I never really learned how to play anything real.
So my wife got wind of the interview (thanks, Google), and for my birthday I got piano lessons. In fact, I got perfect piano lessons—my piano teacher is totally flexible, into theory, and can play just about anything, in any style. He sets homework to do one thing, I get sidetracked and bring back something different, and he just rolls with it and I learn from what I did. It's invigorating, and great fun.
But I'm learning first hand about the Dreyfus model.
