Updated July 2020

Since the COVID-19 virus pandemic began I had to change my teaching method to online “virtual” lessons only via Skype, Facetime, Facebook video or Zoom. I hope to return to giving in person lessons in summer 2021.

I have availability during the daytime and also on some evenings. I have been working to create a productive method for dealing with online lessons an have had good success and positive feedback from my students. 

I am able to send documents and lesson material by email or text with a scanner which has proven very helpful. Also on request I can create video demonstrations of lesson material for my students. 

All in all the virtual lessons have gone well. Please feel free to contact me about my lesson availability.

Twin Ports Guitar Studio

Hello and welcome to Twin Ports Guitar Lesson Studio! My name is Jimi Cooper and I look forward to meeting the needs of each student. 

Playing guitar is an adventure! 

    I enjoy helping my students reach their personal goals and encourage them to be the best musician they can be. Learning to play a musical instrument is a great source of fulfillment. I enjoy helping my students realize the intrinsic value and rewards that can be gained through the dedication and practice it takes to become an accomplished guitarist. Performing music is a joy and is quite addicting! 

    Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding lessons or to make an appointment. For information on rates and my Personal Studio Policy click here.
