Kevin J. Cope

Kevin J. Cope started as a youthful heavy metal guitarist inspired by the likes of Megadeth and Metallica. His tastes grew into the more intellectual metal of bands like Symphony X and Dream Theater as well as the more psychodelic progressive rock of YES. Through exposure to the classical greats of the 20th century such as Igor Stravinsky, Alberto Ginastera, Richard Danielpour, and John Corigliano among others, his own composition style became more complex while still maintaining a connection to the rock and metal music that he still loves to this day.

Kevin J. Cope is a graduate of the University of Delaware with master's degrees in music composition and guitar performance. He has studied with composers Patrick Long, Jennifer Barker, and Andrew Bleckner, and guitarists Matthew Slotkin and Christiaan Taggart. Among his favorite tools is mixing Arabian modes with Western theory to create unique harmonies and melodic structures.
