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.

We welcome you to get to know our school and our teachers and we have a low-pressure process for getting started.

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.

What Is It Like To Learn Violin Lessons At The Eliason School Of Music In Portland?

We know that having the right instructor is crucial when learning the violin, and that is why Eliason School of Music has filled our team with the best violin teachers in Portland, OR. With private violin lessons at our school, students get to enjoy the pleasant tone from the violin sooner and with less effort. Once students have learned how to create a beautiful sound from the violin, they continue to play through book one of the Suzuki method and further strengthen these positive habits of play.

Allowing students to play lots of songs with a beautiful tone helps them get to know the violin, and as a result, they enjoy playing every day.

Once students have created strong positive habits of play in their violin lessons, the lesson focus will shift more to learning scales, sight-reading, and musical theory. Since these students know how to make the violin sound good, we focus next on understanding and playing more complicated works of music in our lessons at our school in Portland.

Students designate a portion of their practice to sight-reading, theory, and scales. This approach to learning makes it easier for students to learn new music because they understand it better. Also, since they learned how to make the violin sound good from the beginning, they always know how to create a beautiful tone in any type of music.
