Cooper Piano and Organ Store

David Cooper recalled, with a warm smile, when his father took him to his first NAMM Show. The Cooper Piano and Organ Store in Georgia began in 1905; therefore, David did not just grow up in the business--his life was always involved in music. The store enjoyed great success over the years due to what David called ‘the willingness to take a chance on what the customer wanted.” It was not always easy to predict the trends and stay on top of them, but his family, which includes his son who now runs the company, has a great track record. David was also a strong supporter of the NAMM Oral History program.
