Miles didn't drop out of Juilliard so he could practice for 10,000 or so he could sit around and transcribing all day. Both of those are great things to spend time on. But let's be honest... he could have done that while he was a student at Juilliard.
He dropped out because he got in with Bird and realized he was learning more by hang with him than he was learning at school. Part of it was playing with him, but a lot of it was just the time together. Mentorship has always been a huge part of the jazz tradition and lineage. Pick any of your favorite musicians and go and read their bio. You'll find that at some point during their development, at least one giant of the music took them under their wing and mentored them.
This personal relationship, this connection on a deeper level than is available in everyday life, is so helpful.
