Welcome to Scott Cook Music
I am a professional guitarist and theorist, currently residing in Montreal, QC. I am on faculty at Vanier College, where I teach music theory and aural skills. I have been playing guitar for 27 years, and teaching professionally for the past 13. I have a PhD in music theory from the University of British Columbia, with research focusing on the analysis of contemporary jazz.
My new ebook, Referential Playing for Guitar: A Practical, and Musical, Approach to Learning the Fretboard, is now available for download through this site!!
I am currently offering guitar lessons, both in person and online. One specific approach, which I've termed "referential playing," is primarily targeted towards intermediate-level guitarists who are looking to expand their playing beyond the gamut of stock chord shapes and scale patterns. For more information on how the "referential" method can help you expand your playing, please contact me here.
