Josh Cook


Downtown/Uptown Toronto





Josh Cook is a musician and composer who is proud to call Toronto his home. While educating himself at York University Josh earned his master’s degree in music composition and performed in a local band called Cool Man Cool. The band’s success earned them an opportunity to share the stage with the legendary Pharrell Williams (as N.E.R.D).

After Josh’s experience as a performing musician he began to focus on his true passion of digital composition and studio production. Josh has an extensive library of his own music, ranging from orchestral works, to hip hop and various electronic genres.

Josh’s musical findings are not something he keeps to himself. For the past 15 years he has been teaching music and passing on his knowledge and skills to budding musicians throughout Toronto and the GTA.

I started working with Josh around 6 months ago and it has opened doors in my singing. I have been singing in rock bands for many years and always struggled to get a tone I was satisfied with in my higher range. I’d worked with other vocal coaches in the past, but their approach didn’t seem to help. Where other vocal coaches could only tell me how my voice should sound and feel, Josh is able to give me actionable exercises that actively address the limitations of my singing. He’s able to connect classical theory and practices to the music that matters to me. He’s patient and makes the practice of singing fun. My only complaint is that I didn’t start working with him earlier. I would recommend him for anyone hoping to unlock their own musical potential.

I have been taking lessons with Josh Cook for a little over a year now. Since I started taking lessons with him I have grown exponentially. He is clear, and his lessons are thorough and practical, he goes over and beyond. He has taught me audio production, mixing and mastering, sound design and composition. As well as music theory and piano. In this short time Josh assisted in getting me accepted into various music schools such as Harris Institute in Toronto. He is a terrific and experienced teacher who caters to the students needs and guides them to being the best they can be.

As a mature student, Josh made a point of connecting with me first as a person, then as a teacher.  This proved to instill a calm confidence and belief in my talent.  Josh’s unique teaching method, high education, knowledge and skill assisted in my speedy learning both practically and theoretically.  He not only encouraged me to be my best as at piano, but to continue my writing.  I am grateful.
