Hi friends, I'm Cooper, a music man based in sunny & beautiful Tel Aviv, Israel. I work with other artists mostly as a guitarist, pianist and harmonica player - and I specialize in (and LOVE!) blues, jazz, and 60s-70s rock n' roll.
In 2014 I founded the blog Guitar Songs Masters-com - which grew over time and work to be one of the top five most-read guitar blogs worldwide (formerly named GuitarHippies), along with its accompannying video courses academy.
Also check out my Harmonica Jamz website and courses - where I teach harmonica easily both to musicians and non-musicians. Join 5000+ students on the flagship course.
My expertise is in teaching you how to play the songs that you love - with your own unique sound that I can help you develop. (Whether if it's on the guitar, piano or harmonica.)
Over the last several years, I spent many months traveling through four different continents with my guitar, and having a great time with many musicians. Right now, I'm developing more learning material for piano and guitar, and I perform with bands and friends. Cheers for living a fun life with lots of great music!
A Review By a Happy Student:
"This course is a collection of harmonica wisdom. It will not directly teach you how to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star but you can easily get that from any beginners harmonica book (Alon does show us how to play the major scale so you could probably work it out without a book after doing this course anyway!).
What this course will do is: a) inspire you b) give you lots of great tips that will help you to understand how to develop good technique c) give you pointers on how to get started and to avoid the pitfalls that many beginners fall into. d) show you the difference between just blowing and drawing on the harmonica to actually playing it as an expressive musical instrument. e) show you the potential that harmonica has as a great musical instrument I have not watched all of this course yet but I wanted to give you my thoughts on it as it stands now."
