As a musician, music teacher, and music professional, I love my job. I can confidently say that I feel very fortunate to enjoy every aspect of the day-to-day work that comes through my computer, email, phone, and through my door. Work does not feel like work, it feels like play. What a wonderful feeling. It is natural to have the occasional challenging day, but 99.9% of the time, the work that I have the privilege of doing is fun and rewarding.
I imagine that there are many others that feel the same way that I do. I am also aware that a large number of people do not enjoy what they do for a living.

This post is for those individuals that struggle to find the joy in what they do. The video you are about to watch is a short clip highlighting a very special person. The Rugh Pignotti, 93 years young, has been teaching piano lessons and musicianship for the past 81 years. She started as a young schoolgirl with a very special gift. 8 decades later, she is still hard at work and having the time of her life. I wish the same for you, dear reader.

To fully enjoy what you do offers so many rewards. Let us all take example from this remarkable woman.
