Bear with me as I explain why...
People shoot targets to learn how to shoot well and with practice can learn to shoot very well... AT TARGETS.
I've watched guys shoot low gun at the range and my observation for the most part is that low gun shooters get better at bringing their gun up - but that doesn't necessarily correlate to better scores. Candidly if someone needs to practice bringing up the gun to the shoulder they should do that at home.
I don't do a full premount, but do have the gun just off my face and shoulder so I can see the clay then lift the gun to face, pull it back the shoulder and pull the trigger. Why? Because the goal is to make contact with the target - not fart around with body mechanics.
Learning lead and more importantly sight picture is probably more critical than anything else other than basic fundamentals.
If you know where to insert the gun in regards to a target or bird's path - you'll be a better shot. Seriously, that's hard enough to learn without hindering the improvement of your shooting because you think lifting the gun should be part of the program.
You are going to lift the gun no matter what... It's more important to know what to do when it's at your cheek than anything else.
Everyone has an opinion... That's mine.

Totally agree with this ^^^^^^^^

NSSA (or "American") skeet is by far the most dominant in North America. It not only DOESN'T require low gun mount, almost no one does it.

Very poor form to start out with your shotgun up to your shoulder and with safety off.
He's asking about how to get better at shooting ducks. How long can you stand with shotgun mounted to your shoulder? It might be a while, and if you use a duck call you're going to need to set the gun down or hold it at your hip...right?
