Matt Cooper

"Insistently original constructions"--Eugene Register-Guard

"Thoughtful"--Washington Post

"Memorable hooks and melodies"--Eugene Weekly

I am a jazz and classical pianist and teacher who believes that all good music is "beyond category." In my recitals you are likely to hear a stride piano solo, a boogie transcription, a tango, and a jazz standard, alongside Beethoven, Bach, Bartok, Chopin, and modern composers. In my teaching, I emphasize the essential similarities underlying composition and improvisation. In my jazz gigs, you'll hear rock, soul, and funk classics along with bebop and standards.
