I "missed" number 3 but I don't agree with their answer so I'm not sure I would call it a wrong answer. You don't have to learn to read music to play piano, plenty of people play by ear.


I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.

quote:"Kinda easy but fun."
That is the purpose.
That is how playing the piano should be,
easy and fun.
Easy - not that it doesn't require work, but it shouldn't
be a chore or made too hard.
Fun - so you enjoy it and play more.

Thanks for this quiz!
However, I'd agree that #3 is not accurate, since there have been many non-classical players who can't read music, and what about the blind players? I believe it was Art Tatum, who was legally quite blind, about whom Horowitz said when hearing a recording "No! That's not possible, it's a trick! Nobody can possibly play that many notes!"
For #4, consider that the major scale of the key of F# contains an E#, aka F.
Perhaps a qualifying statement, "normally, the white keys..." or "99% of the time the white keys..."

Yeah, number three was debateable, but I could tell what answer they wanted, so 100% here. Though given that one of the questions asks whether or not you can learn piano by playing baseball, it's not that much of a feat XD

I missed #3, as well, and I, too, disagree, because I learned to play piano by ear before I ever knew notes had names!

I agree 100%, the question was not a good one. Many people can rip a piano apart and can't read a lick of music, so that is not a correct question/answer.


Peace unto you and yours

3. to play the piano you need to
o A. learn the names of the keys
o B. learn to read music
o C. have a piano
o D. all of the above

My answer would be "none of the above". You need "access to a piano" nothing more.

Well if I hadn't read this before I took the quiz, I would have missed it too.

By the time I got to #3, I decided the questions were too dumb to continue. smile

I already had a problem with #2 (and I don't mean about getting it right), and #3 did it. ha
