To be much more than fair to the student, he may have confused the two meanings of "knowledge" that are distinguished in Spanish:

"book knowledge" -- like physics, or musical theory, or sociology;

"how-to knowledge" -- like wiring-up a theremin, or playing from a lead sheet, or leading a group.

In music (in my experience), you can get the "book knowledge" a heck of a lot faster, than you can get the "how-to knowledge".

I often feel that my mind knows what to do, but my fingers are absolutely unable to comply with its commands.
