Greetings. My name is Joe Probst. Thanks for visiting this site.
When I was five, I realized I had the ability to play piano by ear. Today, I simply make up songs on the fly & improvise. It's a blast, and an absolutely cool gift. Over the years, I've recorded a number of albums, played hundreds of gigs either solo, or with jazz trio, Knapp, Probst & Wolfe. On a rare occasion, I jam with a bunch of rock & roll buddies in a band called Bucky & the LipRippers (don't ask). To add more on the plate, I now teach a few students how to compose their own piano tunes; and they are learning.
Money & Music certainly have changed. It used to be I could record a CD, promote it myself, sell enough to bank for the next one & put a few bucks away. It wasn't a ton of money, but it allowed me to create. In the past few years, I've been working on monetizing via original placed music in film projects. This is my primary goal & musical role for the next 5 years. Second to that will be creative live performances. My musical life is changing ... & that's cool. I'm planning the next phase & it's looking promising.
You're support helps to keep the music to continue. Thanks so much. Joe
