Emily Cohn
Emily Cohn
Music Teacher, Expert
Location: Mamaroneck, NY
Speaks: English
Instructs: Piano
Education: Bachelor of Music , Jazz Studies, Piano Performance, California State University Northridge
Performance Experience: I've played all around the United States as an accompanist for Musical Theatre type show. With pop artists in Los Angeles, and largely in the Musical Theatre world in NYC. I've also been known to be in jazz spots on both coasts.
Teaching Experience: I started teaching at 16 when my High School Band director told me that he thought I'd be a good piano teacher for his young daughter. He told me that i'd figure it out, and put his trust in me from there. I've been teaching for over a decade now , ages 7-80. I use method books for those who want to go that route, and a less traditional route for older beginners and the extremely gifted.
Teaching Philosophy: Have fun while learning piano. I specialize lessons for each individual since we all learn a bit differently. We learn the basics of piano and music and really dive into the style of your choice.

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.
