comment Is teacher guidance always necessary to become an expert?
@ChristianHummeluhr I see. I wonder if expert tuition should be part of the definition or just a common feature. I tend to define, perhaps circuitously, deliberate practice as "a form of practice that is designed to maximise learning".

comment Is teacher guidance always necessary to become an expert?
@ChristianHummeluhr I agree that expert feedback accelerates learning and will often increase asymptotic skill attainment. I just don't think it is "necessary" in the sense that it is possible to attain a reasonable level a skill in many domains without expert feedback.

Of course it is possible to teach yourself many things; and there are often a wide range of self-help resources available. I guess the issue is how much benefit would you get from having a person assist you in your learning process? And what kinds of skills can you more readily acquire using self-study? And what background, motivation, and so on does a person need to effectively self-teach?
