My children have been with Linda since they started piano at age 5, they are now 16 & 14. They simply love her. I appreciate her willingness to flex to their different styles of learning and engagement. I gave both the option to stop lessons after 8th grade, neither one wanted to stop so as a Junior & Freshman in high school they are still with Linda.Nov 5, 2015Evergreen Piano Studio's reply
Thank you Shannon, What great kids you have raised! I believe both of them will be playing piano forever! Thank you for the opportunity to teach them.
My children have been taking piano lessons at Evergreen Piano Studio since 2013. I know for sure that this place is the right place for my children because they don't complain about going or wanting to quit. Ms. Linda has a calm personality and provides honest and direct feedback to the children on where they need to improve and the method for improving. Since our children have been taking lessons at Evergreen Piano Studio, their knowledge and performance has significantly improved. Excellent teacher and mentor for our children.Nov 2, 2015
Linda teaches all three of my children piano.She started with my oldest who is 13 years old when she was six. She is patient yet firm with what she expects.She has been giving my son who is high functioning autistic piano lessons for a year and we have seen him do very well with her class.Feb 11, 2013
My daughter started taking lessons about 2.5 years ago w/teacher Bates. I felt like this teacher has listened to my questions or concerns and addressed them pro-actively. I really appreciate teacher Bates does not placate my child and upholds fair consistent rules (my child loves grey areas). I have really enjoyed watching and listening my daughter 'get it' and she can actually 'play' the piano. Its amazing and I am glad I found someone took the time to help my child be as awsome as I already knew she was.Oct 7, 2012
My daughter has taken lessons with Linda for 6 years, and I'm very pleased with her progress. Linda is patient and makes piano lessons fun. My daughter is now 13 and plays for our church regularly, and I'm certain she will continue to enjoy the piano for years to come. I have found Linda's pricing to be more than fair. You'll be lucky to have her!Nov 30, 2012
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$40 registration $100 mo. 30 minute lessons $145 mo. 45 minute lessons
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First off, I schedule a mini lesson with the interested party. In addition I discuss studio policy and we talk about goals. If all is agreed upon, we can find a convenient time-slot and begin lessons the following week. There is no high pressure involved.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Linda Bates was formally trained for seven years under the tutelage of Joanne Skidmore in Portland, Oregon. She has taught piano successfully for the past 30 years. In addition to teaching, Ms. Bates has acted as Music Director for several community theater productions in Crested Butte Colorado which included vocal direction and accompaniment for the musicals Annie and Oliver and served as pianist in Cabaret. She was employed by The Portland Waldorf School as classical pianist for the Eurhythmy class. Linda has served as Director of Music Ministries, Worship Leader, pianist/keyboardist and Music Coordinator in various churches for the past 17 years and has accompanied school concerts, numerous weddings and social events. She considers music to be a lifelong pursuit, and continues to further her education by attending pedagogy seminars, college classes and teacher workshops.
