How can I say correctly that one day I will be a famous pianist and I will earn money by playing the piano?

“I will be playing the piano one day and I will be getting money from it.”

what is the correct future tense? can I say “from it”? and actually can I say that this way? - would it be better to say “I will get paid for it.” ....I would like to express that I won’t be just paid as for job but I would be paid fortune because I will be good as a Ray Charles.

Some day I'll play piano for a living and make a fortune at it.

  • Could it be Some day I'll play piano for a living and make money at it.?

  • Yes, asolutely. Jan 19, 2020 at 17:14
  • Any other preposition would be possible in “make money AT it”? Kind regards

  • You could say "make money from it," but that sounds a little bit off (i.e., not quite right). Jan 19, 2020 at 17:18
  • And how about: ”Some/one day, I will be/become a pianist and I will get paid for it.” Second sentence is ok? Some or one? be or become? Thank you so much
