Mr. Cook

"My goal is to build community through music and to better the lives and cognitive abilities of students by helping them to develop and improve their musical skills."

Office Location: Skyline High School Room 2529B



The benefits of musical training are limitless and, if taken seriously, can be an investment in your child’s future. Playing a musical instrument is the equivalent to an intense full body work out for your brain and has been proven to increase cognition. Music is a universal language that helps to build strong bonds between people of diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and cultures.
