Joe Clark - Piano    
Joe studied classical piano at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse under Dallas Weekly. He started expanding his style of play by playing in many different bands over the years. These styles include Dixie, Blues, Jazz, Rock-n-Roll, Country, R&B and Gospel, incorporating his fundamental and classical training into all of his performances. Having played in many different bands over the years, Joe has gained experience in performing in many types of venues from small coffee shops all the way up to large concert halls, including the Hard Rock Casino. He also has had the opportunity to work with and perform with countless experienced musicians.

The key to productive piano performance is a sound fundamental approach to the basics of piano technique. This concept is important to all styles of music. Regardless of the style of music you prefer, the same fundamentals apply. Technique, theory, ear training, all apply to all styles of music. Joe brings to the table a very sound fundamental program with the ability to guide the student through any style of music and nurture the desire for that style. In his years of playing a variety of music and as a member of many bands, he will be able to translate these different experiences into the student's desire to perform any style of music.

Joe is new to the La Crosse area and is looking forward to teaching and engaging musicians in the local music scene.
