Private Violin Lessons in Portland, OR
The Eliason School of Music violin lessons program is designed to give students the very best musical education possible while helping them achieve their full potential. We do this by first and foremost by using a method we call the complete instruction method. This unique and powerful method teaches Violinists how to play music purely by ear and it also teaches how to play music by reading sheet music. This approach leads to enriching and lasting musical experience.
We use the Suzuki method primarily to develop skill and confidence in playing by ear, and we also cover note reading, scales, theory, and sight-reading. When students learn with this dual approach, they are exposed to an expanded world of music because it gives them two ways to access and experience music. Each of our violin teachers in Portland, Oregon, has taught for many years and has completed years of training at collegiate levels. We teach lessons in a positive and encouraging way by helping students set goals and create weekly practice plans. Our violin instructors work tirelessly to create lessons that are balanced between fun and productivity to help students develop both musical skills and a belief in their abilities.

What Makes Learning Violin at the Eliason School of Music such an enriching experience?
The Complete Instruction method was developed 15 years ago and over the years we have seen many wonderful things happen with our students as a result of this method. We see students playing at the highest levels of the Portland Youth Philharmonic as well as the Metropolitan Youth Symphony. We see students playing Concerto’s with orchestras, becoming Concertmasters, and excelling in their Classical studies.
We also see students starting their own music groups, excelling at Fiddling, composing their own Music, and performing recitals at their schools as well as our Music school. Perhaps the greatest success, however, is not just that our students learn to play with excellence and beauty, but that they love music and enjoy playing.
Playing music requires a passion that enables you to play your best and to believe in yourself. Our professional violin teachers in Portland encourage students to learn to play the violin the right way so that the tone is both beautiful and pleasing.
