I have been privileged to teach many students in the Nashville area over these past years offering piano instruction in my private music studio.
My past teaching experiences were in Metro Nashville as choral director at the high school level and also at Donelson Christian Academy teaching K4 through high school music. In addition to my private studio teaching, I also taught adjunct piano at Trevecca Nazarene University.
I do not take lightly the task of teaching each student. It is my goal to provide the student with an excellent piano and voice curriculum which will enable the student to acquire the music skills that will last for a lifetime of musical enjoyment. It is my hope that all students will excel at the gifts and talents with which they have been blessed.
I started with Joanie Clark when I was in 7th grade as a vocalist. Over the next five years she completely transformed me. She is such an incredible teacher that I am so blessed to have in my life. She is so passionate about teaching and making you the best you can be. She is my role model and a forever friend. I am now a freshman vocal performance major at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee and also inVoices of Lee, an elite vocal a cappella group. Thank you, Joanie, for working with me and loving me for all those years.
Joanie Clark has done an incredible job working with our daughter. She has taught her so much musically, pushed her when she needed pushing, and always encouraged her. She has grown not only as a musician, but as a Christian as well.

I have two daughters who take piano and voice lessons from Joanie Clark. 1 for 6 years and the other for 3 years. Both my daughters adore her. She not only provides them with a top-notch musical education, she encourages them to be disciplined and organized, which helps them in all other areas of their lives. All this she acomplishes with a loving hand - a strong female, Christian influence in my daughters lives. Can we ever have enough?

Mrs. Joanie is such an amazing teacher. She has helped me achieve each of my goals. She never lets me quit and encourages me every time I get down on myself. She keeps me looking forward to another week. She has been such a blessing in my life!
Joanie is an incredible teacher! She has helped me in reaching my full potential in music. She has been very encouraging and has helped me be the best I can be. She is also a wonderful Christian woman who expresses her Christ-like attitude through her love for music and teaching!
My whole family loves Joanie and the way she teaches piano to me so well. I have been taking lessons from her for six years and don't plan on quitting anytime soon. No matter how much you did or didn't practice in between lessons, Joanie always seems to understand. That patience helps me and everyone else taking lessons from her stay encouraged and keep a renewed sense of dedication. Joanie is a great Christian person, and if anyone is wanting to take piano or singing lessons, I recommend her completely.
