About Alex

I was passionate about music when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off. I

Most single productive day I’ve had at the piano.

DeAnna has excellent credentials as a pianist and music theorist, but more importantly for me she is a patient teacher and good communicator who works hard to ensure that I learn and understand even the most basic skills and techniques. She is also fun to talk to and be with, and her love of music is infectious. She is an excellent teacher for an older student, and I imagine for younger ones too.

Deanna was great! Nice, patient, encouraging, and knowledgeable. I learned basic technique which already has me feeling more comfortable. I'm looking forward to progressing and confident I've made the right choice.

I am a highly qualified and experienced teacher, and adapt my approach and pace to the needs and personality of each student. I ensure they can read the notes they are playing so they can become independent musicians. I have proven success in taking students up to the top level of the ABRSM exams, and I am a member of the California Music Teachers Association. I teach either in English or French using both musical systems (do re mi or ABC).

My qualifications are:

* master of music (piano pedagogy), Notre Dame de Namur University, Belmont, CA (GPA: 4.0)
* state piano teaching diploma, France
* gold medal in piano performance, Conservatoire National
* bachelor of arts degree in musicology, Sorbonne, Paris (cum laude)

I speak both English and French languages.

Very detailed and precise, focuses on why each technique is used and also touches on the history of terms and periods. Also she is very nice and funny.

Laurence is the best! Lessons with her are one of the best parts of my week. She is a master of piano pedagogy, ready with a solution to any trouble I'm having with the exercises, sight reading or music I'm working on. She loves to joke around and have fun but is very serious and passionate about music at the same time. It's a perfect balance! Can't recommend more.
Kurt
Laurence is an excellent teacher. She was understanding when the schedule needed to be changed due to my scheduling needs. She provided the appropriate amount of encouragement and patience, especially when my practicing was limited. I learned a great deal from Laurence and highly recommed her.

I have taken lessons with Anna since I was seven years old (currently age 18). I began knowing nothing about the piano or music theory. Neither of my parents can play the piano. I was a beginner in every sense of the word. Now, I have not only a deep love and appreciation for music, but also an advanced musical capacity and repertoire. I have played pieces from a variety of styles and time periods, from Claude Debussy to Mozart to Hadyn to jazz and contemporary. I was able to have a personal high school senior recital and share this love and talent with others. In high school, I completed a music theory and composition course with ease.

I cannot recommend Anna enough. Her dedication and patience is unparalleled and she cares so deeply for her students. She is methodical, attentive, thoughtful, and is an absolute hidden gem of a teacher. Anna opened a world of music to me and I don’t think I can ever truly express how much that means to me. Not only am I a better musician because of her, but I’m also a better person. Her attention to detail and passion have challenged the way that I approach work and hobbies beyond just music.

Anna is particularly skilled as an educator. Beyond simply giving information for students to practice or memorize, she helps them apply the concepts to real musical pieces, guiding them along the way. Her calm but advanced method of teaching helps students advance quickly through musical concepts.

Over the past eleven years, I have spent literally hundreds of hours with Anna honing my craft. If anyone has seen the extent of her talent as a teacher, I’d like to think it’s me.

Five stars out of five stars. Always.
Grace
We are not going back for lessons with Anna. My daughter found her unfriendly and intimidating. Anna wasn’t very good about communicating with us. She finally sent an email to me on the day of the lesson. I felt she was rude. I’m glad she could not accommodate us. We were going to cancel appointments with her. My daughter is very shy. We will be looking for piano lessons elsewhere.

My daughter is a little intimidated. I’m hoping she softens up a bit

Here are the core things that I focus on in Piano lessons.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.
Building hand coordination is essential to playing piano. A variety of agility and strengthening exercises will help you gain greater control and comfort in playing.

Articulation and phrasing is how pianists convey emotion. By Understanding the different colors available, a performer can create a dynamic and moving experience.

Selecting songs for your skill level and interest is important. Playing music you love will make your experience more enjoyable

I use a variety of books for each of my students customized to their experience and goals. From theory, scales, and technique, to sight-reading and various repertoire, I ensure a well-rounded foundation for their musicianship. I enjoy teaching all genres of piano, from classical to jazz, to pop and movie soundtracks. I like to select repertoire that my students enjoy, along with balancing fun pieces with proper techniques, and performance experience.

Finding Beth has been the highlight of our time during Covid-19. We were preparing to start in person piano lessons when Covid-19 started and quarantine stopped that plan. After searching the web high and low I stumbled across TakeLessons and particularly found Beth. She has been teaching my daughter voice and piano lessons for 6 weeks now and I cannot speak highly enough of her!! My daughter has not only learned so much from her about piano technique as well as how to use her voice as a beautiful instrument, but Beth is also such a positive light and gives my daughter tons of self confidence. Her positive attitude and upbeat teaching style are electric. I would recommend Beth to anyone, old or young, beginner or experienced. Her teaching methods work so well even through FaceTime and many states away. My daughter has gone from beginner to reading music and playing the piano beautifully with grace and self confidence!! Thank you Beth!!!

"My son (eight years old) has been taking piano lessons from Mr. Cooper for one year now and has made great improvement in his piano playing. With Mr. Cooper, he is just not learning to play, but also learning to add emotion to his playing, having musicality. Mr. Cooper has been extremely patient with my son even during times when I know my son is getting frustrated or losing focus. It is evident that Mr. Cooper loves what he does and shares that passion with his students. I highly recommend Mr. Cooper! I’m even thinking about adding voice lessons for my son with Mr. Cooper if our schedule permits."

"If your child is interested in learning to play piano and read music, I would definitely recommend Linda Bates. I have truly enjoyed watching my daughter grow through her lessons.
She was only 5 1/2 when she asked to start learning piano, and even though I thought she might be too young, I didn’t want to discourage her. Linda said that as long as she could count from 1-10, knew her left from right and the alphabet through “G” she could start learning piano.
We have had stretches of easy sailing and lots of rough patches. It’s been a great set of life lessons for our family.
Linda tried several different approaches to see what would work best for my daughter. She has a great balance of patience, structure and encouragement. She’ll let my daughter chatter on about (non-piano related) stuff for a minute, and then, gently but firmly, get her back on track.
We have gone to several recitals and enjoyed hearing her other students play. We are consistently impressed.
My daughter has been taking lessons for two years now, and finally loves piano. She sees the benefit of working at something that doesn’t come easy. She practices every day without complaining! (She’s practiced every day for a while now, but there was A LOT of resistance in the beginning, and middle, lol). Now she knows that most people are not just naturally talented, they actually put in time and effort.
I’m sure Linda would be great for any adult too. One of these days I just might have to find out for myself... although my daughter keeps insisting she’s going to teach me!"
