jenny: the recipe for success in life is following your dream and doing what you love.

if you really really enjoy jazz piano, then you'll find that the opportunities you choose to embrace will have something to do with music.  

getting into the mindset, "...i need to figure out what to do with my life..." isn't really going to help you succeed because you can start narrowing your field of vision by only looking towards opportunities that are within the narrow scope of  "what you need to be doing".

keep your mind and eyes open to every single opportunity that comes your way, no matter what it is, and when one comes along, then it's time to look at it and see if it fits into the path that your life  is taking, not the path that you think your life is supposed to be taking.

that's the problem so many people have and one of the reasons so many people are miserable.  they have narrowed their options to what they "should be doing"  for so long that even when great things opportunities come up, these people miss out on even noticing them.

so just be free, do what you love and follow your heart because if you do that, the other things will fall into place.

cautionary note: this will happen if you take care of business.  do what you gotta to do succeed in any opportunity that you choose to embark on.  if you slack off, you'll never succeed. like anything else, focusing on the task at hand and spending the time and concentration it takes to get it done as best as you can is the way to have great results.
