Founder/owner of One A-Chord Academy and working musician, Scott Shrock Jr. is pursuing his lifelong dream. Growing up in Los Angeles, California, he was surrounded by amazing talent and knew music was his passion. He taught himself how to play the bass guitar and piano by listening to music when he was a child.
By the age of 16, he knew he wanted to work “in music”. In his teens, he joined many bands and performed all over Southern California. He then decided to further develop his fascination with music and applied to Musicians Institute in Hollywood CA. He was accepted into their Bass Performance Program. Scott graduated in the top of his class and received the “Outstanding Achievement Award”. Some of his favorite instructors/mentors include Alexis Sklarevski, Todd Johnson, Putter Smith, and Dominic Hauser.In 2006, Scott moved to the Pacific Northwest where he has played and recorded with many talented local bands and artists. While this proved to be exceptionally rewarding, Scott knew he still wanted to peruse other areas in music. He opened One A-Chord Academy in Monroe, WA in 2009 to focus on youth development.Scott moved to Stanwood, WA in 2016, where he opened a new location for One A-chord Academy. While he continues to support youth development, he has also found many adults also have an interest in pursuing their music education, and he now offers individual and group lessons to all ages. Scott’s classes include electric, fretless and upright bass, electric, and acoustic guitars, piano, and drums. He specializes in music theory, ear training, and band development.
