Classically trained throughout his younger years, Josh studied jazz piano and improvisation at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
After completing his studies, he opened the Josh Cohen School of Music - a boutique music school specialising in piano, guitar and vocal tuition.
In 2010, Josh converted Melbourne's historic Old Melbourne Gaol into a live concert venue dedicated to the music of Radiohead. The event featured a 7-piece band, string quartet and 13-piece choir, over three levels of jail cells.
Josh performed 'The Journey' at the Melbourne Recital Centre in 2013, which encapsulated a broad range of styles and musicians. He also launched his debut solo piano album 'Station Street' at the same venue in November, 2014.
In 2016, Josh is recording a full-length album with long-term friends Dave Havea, Andy Reed and Pat Moevasa-Sili.
In July 2009, Josh opened the Josh Cohen School of Music in Melbourne, Australia. Initially branded as a piano school, the school now offers lessons in piano, guitar and voice.
The school affords students the opportunity to perform at concerts, attend workshops run by professional musicians, as well as attend private recitals by some of Australia's top performers.
