SUMMER 2018 PROGRAM INFORMATION & SCHEDULE WILL BE UPDATED BY JANUARY 15, 2018!
Join us on August 16th for a violin masterclass with performer and educator, Dr. Cora Cooper from Kansas State University. Violin and viola students (any age), teachers and members of the public are welcome to attend and watch Dr. Cooper work with students ranging from elementary age to university majors. Both teachers and students will gain valuable insights as Dr. Cooper explores violin/viola technique, artistic interpretation, and performance skills – all with repertoire by female composers. This will be an excellent opportunity to hear new repertoire, gain inspiration for future performances, and experience new ways of learning and teaching! Everyone is welcome.

Read about Dr. Cooper
Cora Cooper has taught at Kansas State University since 1990, with violin, viola, chamber music and string pedagogy as her areas of focus. A life-long learner, since earning her doctorate in violin performance at Florida State University she has attended Juilliard’s Starling-DeLay Symposium on Violin Studies three times, become certified in the Sassmannshaus Method, and participated in the “Teaching Violin to Children” workshop with Darci Drexler and Mimi Zweig. Cooper’s research interests in performing music by and lecturing on women composers eventually led to the creation of her four-volume graded anthology, Violin Music by Women, and the “sister” anthology, Viola Music by Women, both of which she compiled and edited (published by Sleepy Puppy Press). She loves how music brings her in contact with the most wonderful people, and when not teaching, practicing, or finding great new music to publish, Cooper loves to read mysteries with her dog in her lap.
