My guitar lessons/Meine Gitarrenschule

The concept of these lessons is based on the separation of the playing booklet, the booklet on playing techniques and the theory booklet. The reason for this separation is that the musical theory at the beginning of playing the guitar has in part already been acquired on other instruments. For a teacher it is necessary to quickly gain an overview of the existing knowledge a pupil already has, to specifically work on gaps and to impart new material. Therefore the theoretical part is dealt with in the theory booklet on one (!) page. The booklet comprises the material starting with the line system over to the complex harmony lessons and can be used from third grade on all the way to the end of the obligatory school days - in principle regardless of the instrument used.
Basically the same applies to the booklet on playing techniques and the theory booklet.

Basically the same applies to the booklet on playing techniques: This booklet is also meant to summarize the essential parts and contains pages with blank line systems, which offer room for personal practices.
The playing booklet is based on the G-major scale (in the first position), then quickly changes over to the A-major scale and from there into the two-part play with shifted touch (p and i/m are not yet touched at the same time). Two play-along-CDs enable those pupils, who can work better by their hearing, an approach without notes.

The compilation of the ensemble booklet arose from the wish, to give beginners with the guitar and pupils with slight start-up difficulties an access to the interaction between instruments. The concept: A more simple leading voice (e. g. for recorder pupils from the second year of playing the instrument on), a more demanding second part (e. g. alto recorder or traverse flute), a simple first guitar part with limited scope as well as a bass part for learning the lower tones. In order for the pupils to prepare themselves for ensemble practices, there is a play-along-CD available, where on the left channel only one part, on the right channel the other parts can be heard. That way the pupil can adjust the balance control to the level he or she wants to hear, either all parts, only the own part or only the other parts.
