Joe Ercole

Joe Ercole started playing piano at the age of 9. He studied at Peabody Conservatory of Baltimore on a scholarship. Once a month the faculty monitored Joe’s progress. He would have to play in the concert hall for the faculty behind closed doors. After a year, a handful of professors would offer to teach him for free and come to his house.
