Seven Years professional performing experience road touring in the U.S.A., international on cruise ships worldwide and hotels in Asia.
My vision with students is be a guide in whatever direction they want to go. The most important part about music is having fun. I will work on learning songs, air, tone production, scales/theory, reading music.
Why not learn from a touring professional who has hands-on experience and practical methods to learning?

Cooper's first instrument is saxophone, but is also a skilled doubler on flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, harmonica, bass guitar, piano, and vocals. He's incredibly versatile in virtually any style of music. While at Berklee, Cooper learned the skills of recording and production as well as arranging and composition. Cooper has completed a number of different recording projects including his own full-length album.
