In an attempt to offer students a balanced approach to learning in our piano lessons and violin lessons, we have developed complete instruction which offers students the best of both worlds.

Piano Lessons:
Students enrolled in our Portland Oregon piano lesson program learn pieces from the Suzuki method as well as the Faber and Faber piano method. The benefits of using the Suzuki method are that students can learn songs by ear, focus on performing them correctly, and create excellent habits of play such as proper posture. Once students have had some time to develop strong technical habits of play the focus is shifted more to the learning of scales, musical theory and sight reading. This combination approach in our piano lessons allows students to have fun and enjoy playing lots of songs, while at the same time they learn more deeply how to understand music through the application of scales and musical theory.

Violin Lessons:
The Eliason School of Music has over 60 violin students enrolled in the Portland Oregon area and is growing rapidly. These students vary in age from as young as 5 to over 50. Violin lessons in the school are tailored to match your individual goals for your music. For beginners we use the same approach to learning the violin for everyone because it has proven to be so successful.

For intermediate and advanced students, however, lessons are designed with your musical goals in mind. We train students to compete in competitions, audition and advance into higher level youth orchestra’s and earn scholarships to universities. We also instruct students, if they so desire, in how to play other styles of violin music such as fiddle, Celtic, church carols or even improvising.
