Sally Cohn was born in 1934 in Portland, Oregon. She discovered whistling notes with her cupped hands when she was 12 years old, and developed this talent with the help of Bing Crosby records. Cohn first performed at Oregon State College in 1950. Taping herself and doing duets with cassettes in the 1960s helped her to enhance her hand whistling technique. In the '70s, she whistled in church choirs and performed at political action fundraisers. In her youth, she taught school and did clerical work and later did a 25-year stint as a clerical specialist in an addictions clinic, retiring in 1998. She now does volunteer work at several schools and types term papers and manuscripts. Her favorite gig is teaching middle school kids at a church camp each summer, and this includes a hand-whistling workshop.
