Meet Scott Allan Cohen

As a pedagogue, Professor Cohen has taught a wide range of students from beginners to serious competition performers. His music school has branches in three locations throughout Central Florida, including a studio penthouse by Walt Disney World. He is described as “a remarkably gifted teacher and classical pianist. He has an impressively broad repertoire that flows into his ability to adapt to teaching a high school student like our son or an advanced college student like our daughter. His passion for piano inspires his students and his meticulous approach prepares them well for competition. His academic and competitive achievements are remarkable, and we expect they are only the beginning.”(Kay and Dr. Alan Forbes)

    Tulane University, Downman/ Eminent Scholars Trust Fund Chair
  • Scott Cohen is a brilliant pianist! I have enjoyed hearing him play the complete transcendental études of Franz Liszt in concert and was astounded by his stamina, technique, and musicality. Not only is he a virtuoso pianist but he is a wonderful teacher to aspiring students of all ages and has built a large and impressive network of teaching centers in Florida. He is an inspiring artist/teacher in the very best sense.

    Dr. Mei Li

    CEO, Chicago International Piano Competition and Festival
  • Scott Cohen is the serious pianist’s teacher. He is meticulous, with an eye for detail that gives importance to every element of the piece. He strives to build a solid foundation of proper technique. For him music is not just a group of notes to form a melody, but something to express emotion. Every little nuance has a purpose. He is a real virtuoso, but remains grounded and humble. Because of his talent, personality, and patience, he is able to get the student to express their musicality effectively. Any aspiring artist would be lucky to find a teacher like him.

    Dr. Kenneth Lim

  • Scott is very passionate and dedicated about his work as he creates such masterpieces to the ear bringing so much emotion. His music communicates through the soul making me feel like I’m on cloud nine every single time he plays.

    Bryan

    Gaming YouTube Star, The Famous Films/Men’s Fashion
  • Scott Cohen is not only a stellar pianist, but a magnificent teacher. He understands his student’s needs like few others, and knows how to motivate them to bring out their best. His pristine technique, passion for music, and devotion to educating make him a true artist in every sense of the word.

    Miguel Moore

    Aerospace Engineering Student
  • Scott is an incredible pedagogue, brilliant interpreter, and world-class pianist whom I have had the privilege of studying with for a few months. In just two lessons, a few adjustments we made to my playing resulted in a first-prize international competition win. Scott’s attention to detail and artistic encouragement are complemented by the fact that Scott learns the repertory of ALL of his students prior to each lesson (so he can most effectively help them). He doesn’t want to be one of those music teachers that can’t play a C Major Scale (and there are plenty of them out there; fortunately, none I have ever worked with).

    I highly recommend Scott as a teacher. Whether you are beginner (needing assistance with technical adjustments) or advanced (seeking refinement in artistic interpretations) – the lessons he offer are a PREMIUM value for an affordable rate!

  • I first heard Scott when he performed Ravel’s Ondine at Orfeo Music Festival. I was instantly transported to another world, as Scott’s playing evoked such beautiful imagery, and captured the tale of the water nymph and her lake kingdom, from which the piece is based off of, so convincingly. He plays with such clarity and fluidity, and not only displays impressive technique, but nuanced musicality and an understanding of the emotional depth of the piece. He puts his whole mind and body into his performances, leaving his audience truly engrossed.
