Leon Bates


“Recommended with pleasure.” Fanfare magazine review of Leon Bates’ recording for Naxos of piano works by George Gershwin and Chick Corea.

A native of Philadelphia, Leon Bates began his formal study of music at the age of six on both piano and violin. His talent was recognised and he was groomed for a concert career. Irene Beck gave him his early training at the Settlement Music School and his advanced study was under Natalie Hinderas at the Temple University Esther Boyer College of Music.

In addition to a full concert schedule, Bates is often called upon to give masterclasses. He is a favourite on college campuses because of his broad interests outside classical music. He enjoys all the performing arts including dance, theatre and most types of music. Leon Bates is also a sports enthusiast and disciplined bodybuilder, which he feels aids his playing ability. Recently he has begun composing and finds great satisfaction in this aspect of music making.
