Daniel Cooper


Daniel is a graduate of the QLD Conservatorium of music, where he studied piano under renowned pianists Stephen Savage (Classical) and Steve Newcomb (Jazz/Latin).   In December 2014, he released his debut solo piano album ‘Emotion Elements’.  Recorded in Melbourne, Australia with ARIA award winning producer Thomas Grubb of Mano Musica, ‘Emotion Elements’ showcases Daniel’s virtuosity and unique piano compositions.

In his own words; “I’m not trying to make classical music cool, there’s already a million pianists out there playing the classics (very well)…I’m here to share my story and the method of delivery for that story happens to be music – more importantly my own compositions and a few traditional pieces that mean something to me.  Emotion Elements is my debut solo piano album and represents the first part of my story, I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”

The Beginning, for solo piano.

‘The Beginning’ is a story that depicts the complexities and simplicities of life’s journey.  This is quite a personal piece for me and I encourage listeners to draw their own personal story and meaning from it.
