Default Coaching vs. Taking a lesson

In the thread about advanced riders taking a lesson, it was mentioned that advanced riders get coached and lower level riders take lessons. I was just curious what people's thoughts are on the difference between coaching and taking lessons.

To me:

Lessons for beginners = learning how things work, tend to be more of a 'this is how to do x technique'

Coaching = a more intensive lesson that may include things like rider analyses, feedback, on-going help etc.

I see lessons as the starting point where you get the basics of something and coaching as the on-going instruction and more in-depth help.

I guess my answer is "who the fuk cares what you call it".

Leaning something is learning something, coaching, teaching, lessons, instruction. Its all the same.

I've taught VERY ADVANCED RIDERS, VERY ADVANCED TECHNIQUES, and critiqued their riding... you know what they took? An ADVANCED LESSON

I've taught beginners who've never seen snow before how to ride, guess what they took, A BEGINNER LESSON.

the difference between the two? The level of techniques I was teaching. Some of my father's students are the best golfers in Iowa, and they have been working with him for YEARS... when they book an appointment with him. They are taking a lesson. I'm sure when they are talking to one of their friends they either say "I'm Tim's student, or Tim is my PGA coach." but to a teaching professional learning is learning... call it what you want but make sure you get something out of it.
