Best solution, IMO:
A good teacher or change the teacher
Interesting suggestion, as it triggers my other thoughts, which may not be relevant to Lare's original topic of "technical plateaus", rather "why has my progress stalled", e.g. mismatched expectations or objectives
between a teacher and his/her student?
The teacher will train a student to various levels of objectives, from recreational -for old(er) guys like me, to professional classical guitarists. As such, different methodologies may apply to guide and motivate a student. Otherwise, the general complaint is something like "the student is not ready for next fun/challenging exercises" from a teacher and/or "taking lessons is like pulling teeth" from a student?!
So it may not be directly a technical plateau as a result of lack of interest or motivation, but the effect is the same, stalled progress.
Thus changing a teacher, now with a more defined objective(s) and perhaps a custom curricular learning plan would help.
My 2 cents
