I'm Casey Cooper - Drummer - 24 - Atlanta,Georgia. I make YouTube videos & I am a @Drumeo Instructor!

I'm Casey Cooper, or COOP3RDRUMM3R, a drummer born in Arlington, Texas, and now based out of Atlanta, Georgia. I'm currently attending Georgia State University in downtown Atlanta, and play drum set for the Marching Band and Basketball Band.

I've been playing drums for close to 15 years now. Variety and flexibility are two things that I pride myself in. If you watch my videos you will see everything from dubstep covers to classic rock performances, drum and bass solo work, christian praise bands to pop covers. I try to be as flexible and versatile as possible in my drumming so that I may perform and succeed in many situations. I've performed for everything from comedy shows, rock shows, churches, to marching bands, and recorded all varieties of music.

As much as I value technical skills behind a set, my most important asset is that of being a musician and not just a drummer. Although I love showing off and playing really difficult parts, I focus on recognizing and using drums to add to and highlight the important parts of songs. My job as I see it is to add to and make the song better, and not to take away by writing parts that are distracting and obnoxious. This can be shown most effectively in the studio recordings I produce for various artists.

Now that you know a little about me, and you've been introduced to the world of COOP3RDRUMM3R, feel free to check out my work, hit me up to ask a question, suggest a song to cover, or contact me if you're interested in having me record, perform, or collaborate in whatever situation you have. I am always willing to play, and I really enjoy interesting musical opportunities.

I have always played Pearl drums, and endorse them every chance I get, but I also have a major appreciation for numerous other brands.

"Dunder Mifflin, this is Pam!" So I can't tell you how honored and awesome it was to get the chance to meet Jenna Fischer while in L.A. yesterday. She is the example of a class act and a very talented and inspirational actress. The Office is my wife and I's favorite tv show of all time and her work in it is a big reason why the show is so great! The fact that she and her son love my drumming and my videos means so much and is very encouraging! Just another example of working hard, doing what I love, and that taking me so many cool places! I hope that both of our work inspires you to do the same. Keep an eye out for her special appearance in my upcoming VLOG!
