I have been teaching professionally for the past six years. As a student who struggled myself in nearly every aspect of education, I understand the importance of individualized learning. As a teacher and performer, I look to find relationships between the emotional and intellectual facets of music. By doing this, I try to uncover the mystery of violin playing, allowing my students to gain an understanding that will last with them forever.

Every single student posseses the potential to fulfill his or her violinistic dreams. I cater my teaching around the goals of each student, while still instilling a high artistic integrity.

Though I center each lesson around building a superior technical foundation, duet playing, the theory of harmony, and aural skills are integral parts of my teaching. I strive for my students to develope a beautiful, in-tune, pure sound that can directly connect to their own emotional palette.

About Thomas C.

Hailed as "delightfully spirited, [with a] rich tone" (Cleveland Classical) violinist Thomas Cooper has appeared as a soloist with several American orchestras, including the Colorado College Festival Orchestra, the Coeur D'Alene Symphony Orchestra, the Credo Baroque Orchestra, the Dubois Orchestra at Harvard, and the Middlesex Chamber Orchestra among others. As a competitor, Cooper received top prizes at the Naftzger Young Artist Competition, Colorado College Festival Concerto Competition, American Protege Competition, Arlington National Competition, was a semi-finalist at the Washington International Competition, and most recently took first prize at the 2019 Cremona International Academy’s Violin Competition. As a chamber musician, Cooper has been heard alongside the Jupiter Quartet, the Oberlin Trio, and pianists Evgeny Sinaiski, and Orion Weiss.

Cooper recieved his M.M. degree from New England Conservatory with Soovin Kim and Malcolm Lowe, and received his B.M. degree from Oberlin Conservatory with Milan Vitek and Peter Slowik.

As an award winning, seasoned, performer, and experienced teacher, my students have gained entrance into programs such as the Eastman School of Music and The Boston Youth Symphony
