After completing her German studies in her French hometown of Mulhouse, Joanne Bialek-Tan studied accordion at the Conservatoire Mulhouse in the class of Christine and Andrzej Rytwinski. She then attended the Hochschule für Musik in Detmold and the class of Prof. Grzegorz Stopa, completing her degree in music pedagogy. This was followed by an apprenticeship as a veterinary assistant.

During her studies, she attended master classes with Roman Jbanov and Domi Emorine, Marie-Andrée Joerger, Artem Nizhnik, Pascal Contet and Bruno Maurice, gaining further musical and artistic inspiration.

She acquired scholarships from the Foundation Pierre & Jeanne Spiegel Mulhouse and the Foundation Allianz and was supported by the Soroptimist Mulhouse several times.

Her musical focus includes original solo works for classical accordion (Nordheim, Takahashi, Solotarev and others), baroque works (Scarlatti, Haendel, Bach), as well as "program music" - including her own compositions. She prefers to perform in the context of interdisciplinary cooperation with other art forms such as literature or theatre. She also owes inspiration to her homeland and always enjoys interpreting pieces from the musette or chanson repertoire.
