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. To cut down on travel time his father elected to have them come to him. That went on for 4 years. Then Joe heard the Beatles and turned his interest toward that genre of music, despite his father’s disappointment. At the age of 13 he started a band and started to play rock and roll and Motown cover tunes.
