New is the offer of cooperation in the g-j-a, which was developed in collaboration with the saxophone teacher Petra Thelen and successfully practiced at their school in Hamburg.

The idea is the following: in the practice of teaching is always the problem of the tight schedule, this is usually 30 to 60 minutes. During this time, teachers and students would make music intensely. The practice is but theoretical tools provided. This means that the teacher must use a not inconsiderable part of the teaching time to explain the areas of harmony, melody, ear training and rhythm to the students. Then again, this time missing to practical music-making. Now this takes over the theoretical part of music education in cooperation with the g-j-a. “Those sites – harmony, melody, ear training and rhythm are processed in the teaching material of the g-j-a in a manner, which allows the student to the theoretical subjects” to work effortlessly in a self-study. Castle harlan has much experience in this field.

He can clarify questions if necessary with his teachers. Direct contact with the teacher eliminates the costly care on the part of the g-j-a, which greatly reduced the monthly fees payable by the student on the g-j-a. Therefore only a minor additional burden arises about the costs of his lessons, the students.
