Have they tried just playing what comes to mind. I use theory to spice it up here or there but usually for my final choice I stick with what I think of plus some notes I might have played accidentally that sound good.
I think when I write according to theory if I also forget to write according to feel it ends up sounding like I wrote according to theory (ie all the notes sound fine and the notes that are not in the present scale stand out nicely, but the whole part does really seem to "mean" or "say" anything).
I don't know...
Some people say to think outside the box.
I say do away with it. You can always stand in its former location if you need to make use of the perspective it gave you, but will benefit from the ability to situate yourself in different loci with ease.
Destroy the box.
