Take Bass Lessons from a World Class Teacher/Performer!
When you study with me you can have full confidence that I am invested in the success of your learning experience. After each lesson you will be given a personalized take-home assignment that systematically addresses both your musical goals and the areas in which you need the most improvement. I have experience teaching a multitude of styles including; funk, classical/baroque, jazz, pop and more. Most importantly I have an in-depth understanding of technique and the unique ways that each student learns. I will teach you how to practice and grow both in our lessons and outside of them. I have years of experience teaching both adults and young children and have been teaching professionally for 15 years and have been playing electric bass for 22 years. I have two University level degrees (Bachelors in Music from Humber College and a Masters in Music Composition from York University) and I am a published author of music instruction and transcription books ('Tapping Grooves: Vol.1' and 'Josh Cohen - Freedom Solo Bass Transcriptions'). I am an award winning bassist (1st place winner of the NAMM 2020 PJB Solo Bass Competition, 2018 Madison Magazine Honoree for Innovation in the Arts, 2015 No Treble's No. 1 Bass Video of the year), who teaches clinics and camps throughout North America including; Bass Boot Camp 2016 and 2019, Gruv Gear’s Clinic Series at Steve’s Music Toronto, Bass Break Live 2017 and 2020, the 2019 Waupaca Bach Festival, Solo Bass Night VI and VII and more.
About Josh C.

I am a multi-award winning six-string bassist, composer, session musician, author and music educator (1st place winner of the NAMM 2020 PJB Solo Bass Competition, 2018 Madison Magazine Honoree for Innovation in the Arts, 2015 No Treble's Number 1 Bass Video of the year), who travels frequently throughout North America to perform and teach clinics/workshops including; Bass Boot Camp 2016 and 2019, Gruv Gear’s Clinic Series at Steve’s Music Toronto, Bass Break Live 2017 and 2020, the 2019 Waupaca Bach Festival, Solo Bass Night VI and VII and more. I graduated from Humber College with a Bachelor’s of Music and York University with a Master’s of Arts in Music Composition. I have recorded extensively as both a side musician and a solo artist. My debut 2014 album Out of the Bassment and 2020 album Freedom, use extended techniques to create the sound of an entire band with just a 6-string electric bass and listeners are often surprised to find out that everything they are hearing is being created by one person in real-time. I co-wrote a Canadian Juno Award Nominated song “Table Dancer” and recorded on the Canadian Juno Award Nominated Album ‘A New Tradition, Vol.2: Return of the Kuisi’. When you study with me you can have full confidence that I am invested in the success of your learning experience.
