What's wrong with that?

I saw both of them only using live view and holding it out in front of them like a smartphone.

I do mostly concert photography and I rarely use the VF. With a filly articulating screen, you can get angles that otherwise you would have to lie on the floor or skip altogether. Eye level concert shots are kind of boring after a while.

Now I get that these kids grew up taking photos with phones, but an instructor or someone for the love of god should have at least taught them how to hold a SLR.

If you get the shot you want, don't miss any due to fatigue, and don't take any excessive risk in damaging the gear, I'm hard pressed to suggest their hold was "improper".

How did the shots turn out? Do you have a link?
