About Me

Learn to play your favorite tunes with the exclusive "Easy Way Method" accelerated learning technique. Specializing in jazz, improvisation, pop and music theory.

Says Allan, "In every lesson I find what a person does well, even if they have not practiced, and we build on that. Instead of telling a person what's wrong, I tell them what's right. That way they make terrific progress!"

After graduating with a law degree, teacher Allan Harris immediately started a music production company (why not?). For 12 years he wrote, arranged and produced music for radio, TV and films. Some of his clients were Hawaiian Telephone, Safeway, IBM, Yamaha Motorcycles, Air Canada, and Pepsodent. Allan began teaching piano in a studio that taught Accelerated Learning Techniques.

While there are many great piano players, great teaching is a different skill. Because Allan also worked as a technical writer/trainer, he understands how people learn. His interest, and strong suit, is this...

Allan is currently the Director of the Adventures in Music program for the Port Angeles Symphony and is developing a self-teaching program for children with schools that have no music teachers.

My Musical Education Background

Two of the most prestigious music schools in the U.S. have been the Berklee School of Music on the East Coast and the Dick Grove School of Music on the West Coast. Allan's background knowledge comes from the Dick Grove school.

Allan has 25 years of experience in music arranging, producing, composing, and teaching.

Student Reviews

Sequim, WA

I'm a motivated adult beginner who, after two years of studying with different teachers, was extremely fortunate to have connected with Al Harris who has put it all together for me. Al is not only a veteran professional musician, he is a gifted instructor who understands where I want to go with my study, and he knows precisely the steps I need to take. My sessions with him are always enjoyable and productive. I'm progressing in leaps and bounds. Highest recommendation.
