J.P. Taravella’s new band director is holding “Dessert with the Director” on Tuesday.
A graduate of Florida State University’s College of Music, Jonathon Cooper, is a former section and row leader of the trumpet section at his alma mater, where he majored in music education, graduating magna cum laude.
A proud alumnus of Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps, which received the Jim Ott High Brass Award in 2019, Cooper recently completed his student teaching internship at Vero Beach High School.
He is a member of the Professional Development Conference & All-State Concerts, Florida Band Association, and the National Association from Music Education.
The ‘Dessert With The Director’ event at 7 p.m. July 27 is a chance to learn more about Cooper’s plans for the upcoming marching band and concert season at J.P. Taravella.
Band families are encouraged to attend, as the JPT Band and Orchestra Program travels throughout the state, participating in performance assessments. Since these trips are never cheap, fundraising ideas are welcome.
As a new band director, Cooper will also be discussing the next band camp, held at Taravella in the first two weeks of August.
J.P. Taravella is located at 10600 Riverside Drive.
