Interesting point of view from a 17yo, and he's right with the above. I've seen many youngsters give it up after less than an hour - "too difficult", "don't like it anymore". The Playstation generation, must be easy and quick.
Ironic: on the old, unstable, 80s boards that made everything way more difficult, everyone could learn, almost easily !!
I also agree with the difficulties he mentions - getting there, no car, etc. When I teach newbies, I personally concentrate on the 20-25yo. But they too are part of the "too difficult" generation.
