Complete Instruction Method:

Photo of Piano & Violin Classes in Portland, ORThis method evolved after years of experiences with portland piano and violin students who came to our program after experiences with other programs. We found these students and parents had common complaints about their previous lessons that led them to our school. Some students were allowed to play lots of pieces of music and the focus was on fun, but they were not improving because important techniques were not being taught.

Other students were not learning any pieces and had spent as long as almost two years devoted solely to exercises and musical theory. 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.

How long a lesson do you recommend for a beginner?

Typically a half hour lesson is appropriate for beginning and even intermediate students. You can always switch to a longer lesson in the future if you prefer to cover more material or speed your progress.
