Eliason School Of Music Piano and violin lessons in Portland, OR
We offer both violin and piano lessons to students of all ages. We understand that as a parent you have a choice between several studios and that not all programs are the same. We use a unique combination approach to learning that we call complete instruction. This 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.
Products and Services
Students enrolled in the Portland violin lesson program start lessons using the Suzuki method combined with a unique 7 Step Method for Tone Production developed by Brian Eliason. This combination method allows the teacher to immediately pinpoint what is wrong in a students tone, show the student through simple exercises how to strengthen that weak area, and as a result immediately improve the overall tone from the instrument.
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.
Students enrolled in our Portland Oregon Guitar lesson program learn pieces from the Suzuki method combined with more traditional note reading techniques, and we offer both acoustic and electric guitar instruction.
