Scott ‘Professor Piano’ Cushnie, legendary Canadian musician, pianist and blues and boogie-woogie master (1938 - 2018).
His recent passing has left a void felt across the industry and in the hearts of everyone who knew him.
Scott was long ago dubbed "Professor Piano" in response to his encyclopedic knowledge of music. He survived the early days of rock and roll and had more than a few stories to tell from his journey, including performing alongside many greats over his varied career. Musicians like Doug Riley, Robbie Robertson, Jimmy Reed, King Biscuit Boy, Ronnie Hawkins, Duane Allman and Aerosmith, just to name a few!
Scott loved to share his knowledge and love of music. While we weren't able to complete our lessons' series, a documentary on Scott's amazing life is in the works.
