How do you know if you are talented at piano?

The Importance of Practice for Success

There is a saying - 99% of hard work and 1% of talent will make you a good pianist. Several studies have traced young piano students and seen that those who were viewed as more "talented" put in more hours practicing before hand. It can be difficult to realize when watching someone perform brilliantly that their ability is the result of many thousands of hours of practicing and training. While piano might not be for everybody, a huge factor in the success of anyone playing piano is practicing. For many successful students, practicing becomes fun - really the main purpose of playing the piano. Learning new pieces and perfecting technique are the typical day to day actions of a pianist. If you are eager to learn the piano and have the means to practice regularly as well as a good teacher or some means of learning the instrument, you will almost definitely find yourself succeeding and improving.

What It Means to be Talented

I think that you can know if you are talented in piano if you can move pretty fast (as long as you try) and when you are putting as much work and thought into piano (with mostly the same conditions and a similar teacher) as someone else but you are receiving remarkably better results, then you can consider the thought of being talented.

Some people don't have the chance to show their talent; to the people that do, work hard and make all the money and time worth it.


What to wear in piano recitals?

My teacher wants girls wear old school dress like skirts , blouse and long socks she also likes big hair clips like ribbon.she do not like a child with thick makeup.for boys she wants barong and pants.

EDIT; My answer:

If you are a boy, perhaps something slightly formal (but not as formal as tuxedos) black long pants, and maybe a tie would be fine.

If you are a girl, you can either wear a dress or a more formal-looking shirt and a skirt.

All the rest is up to you.

In fact, you can actually wear whatever you want to. As long as you think you look good in those clothes. Make sure someone else thinks that way, too.

On the piano does E equal F flat?

E natural and F natural are a half step away. With accidental marks like # and b, they tell you to either move up or down a half step. There's another two, but I can't show them on this answer thing. But those are the only ones that make you move up or down a whole step.

So, Fb would be moving down a half step. Move down a half step and you've got E natural.

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 could give you something to work towards.

How do you eat a piano?

One bite at a time.


  1. Do not eat anything for the days that precede the "piano eating" day.
  2. Get a saw (under parental watch) and saw the piano into edible sized pieces.
  3. Separate the keys from the wood.
  4. Add seasoning.
  5. Eat up!

*Make sure you eat the keys first, then the pedals, and finally the wood.*

*Please make it a priority to eat cherry or mahogany wood. *

*Yamaha and Steinway & Sons are the most delicious brands of Grand Pianos*

It is not recommended to eat any form of pianos; grand or keyboard. Thank you.


Is the piano a c instrument?

Yes, the piano is a C instrument. The reason behind this is that when a personal plays a C on the piano a C is heard. 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. It gets a bit confusing, but that is the basic explanation behind the terminology.
