That is because you are not realizing that Arturo is not doing this
for the sake of JSH. He is just using JSH as a front to practice
lecturing people about the math. Nobody will blame him if he fails
with JSH (though amazingly, and with many regressions, he does seem to
make advances at some time), and he is honing his skills for the sake
of pupils less violently opposed to learning.

Paganini at one time got annoyed at people attributing his mastership
to his Stradivarius (one myth was that his G string was from the guts
of a deceased mistress), so after one particularly applauded concert,
he broke the violin he had been playing on into pieces. He then
explained to the flabbergasted audience that it was a cheap instrument
of low quality he had bought a few days before for that purpose.
