The more time dedicated to studying the piano, the shorter time it takes to learn. Another factor to consider is that adults tend to learn faster than small children. Being taught by an experienced, knowledgeable and inspiring teacher also make learning easier. Additionally, learners who set aside regular practice sessions and those who are passionate about playing piano take a shorter time to master the craft. Some people have natural abilities that make the skill come easier to them, but practice is usually the greatest factor in learning.

  • Q:

    How is the piano played?

    A:

    Technically, the piano is a percussion instrument, and it generates noise when the keys are depressed because each key is connected to a small hammer that strikes a string that is located inside the instrument. Pianos with broken keys, hammers or strings will not generate sound correctly and may not even generate any sound at all other than the sound of the key being struck. Piano players use their fingers and hands to depress the keys, which then triggers the string striking that generates musical notes that coordinate to the specific key being pressed.
