Scott Cook Music

Guitarist, Theorist, Educator

I am a professional guitarist and theorist, currently residing in Vancouver, BC. I have been playing guitar for 26 years, and teaching professionally for the past 12. I have a PhD in music theory from the University of British Columbia, with research focusing on the analysis of contemporary jazz.

I am currently offering guitar lessons, both in person and online. My specific approach, 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 at
