A trained teacher, Andrea Cooper has taught everything from computers to clawhammer banjo. Andrea caught the Irish music bug while she was living in Toronto over a decade ago. Since then, her tin whistle teaching and playing has taken her to places as far as Eek, Alaska and St. Joseph’s Island, Ontario.
Andrea was the resident tin whistle teacher at Randal Bays’ Friday Harbor Irish Music Week in the Pacific Northwest for 7 years where a student described her classes as “the icing on the Jackie Daley cake”.
Upon moving to New England 5 years ago, she has had the opportunity to teach whistle at the Irish Ceilidhe Club of Rhode Island and for 2 summers at a Celtic Children’s Summer Camp. She has been on staff at various music and dance camps including Pinewoods and Algoma Trad. She is thrilled to be a first-timer staffer at Maine Fiddle Camp.
