Teaching since:
June 2003

Bachelor's Degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Ten Years professional performing experience road touring in the U.S.A., and international on cruise ships. Most recently with For The Record Live from Los Angeles, CA. Jazz and popular music, as well as classical.

My vision with students is be a guide in whatever direction they want to go. I want the student to find their individual musical voice, as well as technique. I will work on learning songs, air, tone production, scales/theory, reading music, improvisation, etc.

Why not learn from a touring professional who has hands-on experience and practical methods to learning?

Yo hablo español!

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. He has been featured as an arranger in different settings, from lounge music to classical chamber music. Cooper has taught students off and on throughout his career, and absolutely loves the ability to help out someone who wants to learn.

My first online harmonica class with Cooper went great. He is very patient and I do appreciate that. I am looking forward to my next class :)

Cooper really cares about his students and that's evident from the very first lesson. He's patient and encouraging and really made the lesson fun!
I highly recommend him.
