I have been a computer programmer, a business analyst, a songwriter, a music producer, a recording artist, a runner, a ski bum, a climber, a dancer, an aerobics instructor and a sailor.

Now, I am a music educator, an entrepreneur, a performer, tennis and basketball player, a walker, wife, mother, traveler, Band-in-a-Box lover, bridge player, dog lover and a snow skier.

I was born in Zimbabwe in 1964 and now live in Johannesburg South Africa.

 I also have several other websites and apps.

About Joanne Cooper

I am Joanne Cooper, a singer-songwriter and producer from Johannesburg, South Africa. I aim to bring the joy back into making music for singers, musicians, teachers, students, and songwriters, no matter what the level of expertise, by providing auto-accompaniment software (Band-in-a-Box) as well as guitar play-along videos, songbooks and chords and lyric charts. I have been a dedicated Band-in-a-Box user since 2012 and have produced hundreds of songs, both covers, and originals using this unique tool

After working and socializing with literally hundreds of musicians I've found that most artists, students and teachers don't need more ideas - they need help fully implementing these ideas so that they can move the needle in their musical growth.

As a reseller of this wonderful product, I will share my strategies, workflow, and expertise that I have gained over the last eight years and hundreds of songs and have seen work time-and-time again with other musicians just like you. You will learn how to use Band-in-a-Box and stay on track to achieve your musical goal.
