Dr. Jackson Kohl, Instructor of Theory and Sight-Singing at C.W. Post, received his B.M. degree in piano performance from Queens College/CUNY, and his M.M. and D.M.A. degrees from the University of South Carolina in piano performance. He has been on the faculty at Jefferson Community College/SUNY (Watertown, N.Y.), and also at Community College of Allegheny College in Pittsburgh, P.A. where he was a full-time professor.
