Do you feel there’s a benefit to jumping around with different (qualified) instructors, or just committing to one?

I will give you my opinion as a student.

I think a lot of it depends on where you are in your skills, how you learn, what you want to learn, and what kind of budget you have. Certainly, you will learn different things from different coaches, but the instruction needs to complement each other and not compete with each other.

The most important thing, in my opinion, is your relationship with the coach. It takes time for you to learn the coach and for the coach to learn you. A good coach will build on what you have and help you get better.

When you first start taking instruction I think using only 1 instructor is ideal assuming you are confident in the instructor that you have chosen. The purpose of a lesson is to gain the knowledge that you need to practice correctly on your own. Knowledge with practice turns into skill. Skill is the first step in allowing yourself to shoot sub-consciously. If you have too many ways to do the same thing this will make you more knowledgable, but less skilled.

After you have reached a level of consistently shooting 85% or higher in competition targets then a lesson from another instructor could be good to good means to add "tools" to your game. I would stick with your base approach and be honest with the instructor that you have a few specific shots that you would like to know his/her approach on.

I have used different instructors, over the years. I agree with sticking with one instructor to get all your basics and shooting style set. Went from swing thru to pull away and was able to go up a few classes. Took a couple of classes with Anthony on a few targets I had problems with and was able to pick up a few more targets. He also started me shooting two eyes.
Mentioned this to Bruce Nye while squadded with him. He taught me a easy way to make it easier. Took a few weeks of practice and it came around.
Try instructors that use the same system. We always can learn more...
