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 in 2009 - 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' in 2013, he launched his debut solo piano album 'Station Street' in 2014 and performed with his staff from the Josh Cohen School of Music in 2016 at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

In 2016, Josh opened a second music school in Hawthorn, Melbourne. This year, he is recording a full-length album with long-term friends Dave Havea, Andy Reed and Pat Moevasa-Sili, as well as focusing on running his YouTube channel and publishing a solo piano Radiohead songbook. Josh now has over two hundred students, fifteen staff and two campuses.
