Joe Augustine is a leading exemplar of jazz piano and has performed in a wide variety of musical settings from the concert stage to jazz clubs. Through the artist-in-residence program, Joe has committed to being on the Lake Erie College campus during the academic semester to offer his highly praised Master Classes. Joe’s training, experience, and inventive musical style will transcend the learning experience of Lake Erie College students regardless of their chosen vocations or career paths. 

Joe has lectured extensively at universities and colleges and will bring his signature style to the Master Class lectures at Lake Erie College. Augustine’s Master Class lectures cover subjects such as “Anxiety and Performance,” “Music as a Business,” “Harmony and Creative Song Writing,” and “The Art of Improvisation.” These topics are discussed in depth and tailored to his student audience. 

This collaboration – between College, donor and artist – promises to greatly benefit our students, enrich the arts environment on campus and draw attention to our growing fine arts programs. Thank you for your support!
