Cooper is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer who teaches guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, improvisation, music theory and Rock Club. He earned his Bachelor of Music in Theory and Composition from St. Olaf College in 2012.
Since graduating, Cooper has gradually immersed himself in as many musical outlets as possible, including Minnetonka Music’s very own rock band, the Expansion. His other projects include a blues rock band, a funk/jam band, and a hip hop duo, all of which he has also produced albums for.
As a teacher, Cooper caters lessons specifically to the students’ interests and goals, teaching skills that directly translate to learning their favorite songs (all genres welcome). He’s also brought music-teaching into the 21st century with Google Doc lesson notes, so students can access their notes from anywhere with access to the cloud.
