How do you know if you are talented at piano?

While piano might not be for everybody,...

How do you play Hockey Night In Canada theme song on the piano?

I take it you are referring to the Hockey Night in Canada musical theme that was played at the introduction/closure of the televised games from the mid-60's through to the mid 2000's. This theme is not a song since there are no lyrics. Unfortunately the British composer of this theme refused to renegotiate the use of her composition with the CBC television network and so it is no longer heard. The musical score may be available in some music stores. ...

How stop playing with your retainer?

Keep your hands off the retainer. You can put gloves or mittens on since you wouldn't want to touch it with those on. Trust me, they feel strange when wet. If you absentmindedly mess with it while you do something like watching TV, put a rock in each of your hands. When holding this, you won't have a free hand to mess with your retainer. When you go so long without messing with it, reward yourself with a little treat. That...

As an example, the trumpet is a B-flat instrument - because when a trumpet plays a C it sounds as a B-flat so it's music is written in a different key in order to play with a C instrument, such as a piano, flute or violin.
