Mr. Hooper’s interests include Schenkerian theory and analysis, theories of form, and the late music of Elliott Carter. His dissertation (in progress) reconstructs Heinrich Schenker’s early approach to form. Preliminary research on this topic earned the Patricia Carpenter Emerging Scholar Award from the Music Theory Society of New York State, and appears in Theory and Practice, vol. 36 (2011). He has presented related work at annual meetings of the Society for Music Theory; the Seventh International Conference on Music Theory (Tallinn, Estonia); and the European Music Analysis Conference (Leuven, Belgium). He also serves on the editorial board of the journal Intégral.

Mr. Hooper teaches a variety of courses at UMass, including undergraduate music theory and aural skills; graduate courses on Schenkerian analysis, recent theories of form, and music since 1945; and a general-education course on the history and analysis of film music. He received a UMass Residential First-Year Experience Student Choice Award in 2011, and a Fellowship for Innovative Teaching from the UMass Center for Teaching & Faculty Development in 2014–15.
