Remembering Violinist Roman Totenberg who Died at age 101

Filed under: Career,Life — admin @ 12:08 am

5/8/2012 saw the passing of Roman Totenberg, a violin instructor from Poland.

What is remarkable about his life is his 9 decades of violin teaching career. He started teaching when he was 11 and he had a student who was 10, until the day before he died at age 101.

I told my daughter of his long teaching career. “The man must enjoy what he was doing,” she said. “Absolutely,” I said. “It must have given him tremendous joy doing what he loved everyday. I hope you can find something you enjoy and keep doing what brings you joy as long as Totenberg.”
