Get to know Emily Cohn
Born and raised in California, young adult in Los Angeles, and now enjoying life the most living in the best city in the world, New York.
I grew up playing piano, flute, piccolo, oboe, some percussion, a true high school band nerd. I was the band staff president ,as well as Drum Major, and playing in the wind ensemble and jazz band.
College was a deep dive of Jazz for 4 years where I grew to love not just listening and playing jazz , but transcribing all kinds of music and a huge love for latin jazz and salsa.
I spent a bit over a decade in Los Angeles, teaching piano lessons , playing jazz and pop gigs, working with artists, recording, accompanying church and school choirs, and writing music.
I eventually realized that the Musical Theatre world was the performance lane for me and moved to NYC.
Pre pandemic, I was playing in the Broadway community and was looking forward to playing some Broadway shows.
During this pandemic I've had the luxury to teach a lot more and get back to enjoying playing for the love of playing.
