The average typing speed is a little over 30 words per minute (one word is five characters), with some typos here and there.

I am curious to know what the speed of pianists are. When you take this test in your own language, what's your score?

60 WPM with zero errors if I'm reading what I have to type - something of a moderate speed. I'm perfectly okay with it.

If I don't have to look at anything while I type, it's somewhere over 80 WPM with zero errors.

Any reason why you asked back in 2015? Still lurk on this forum?

Before my wife and I met each other, we competed on a typing challenge app on facebook. You had to type a random phrase with punctuation and capitalisation. You would have to correct each mistake before it would register your answer.

The first go, I got 60wpm. That was quite easy. My wife then scored 70, which matched my best. So being the cheeky bugger I am, I got my brother to try and he scored 80.

My wife scored 90.
My brother 100.

Then nothing.
A few days later, she scored 120. We just laughed and gave up.

We’re all competent on the piano, but I play mostly Bach and Liszt, my brother Beethoven, and my wife Chopin, Debussy and Ravel.

I was quite shocked.... was always under the impression that this untrained person is quite good at typing at work but I only managed a measly 46wpm. The punctuation put me off a little (am British and some of the commas were wrong, IMO) and I'm typing on a Swiss German keyboard but nevertheless, I could never crack 80wpm.

I type at about 75 wpm. Not too bad, but nothing impressive.

@stormbringer... Probably, OP is trying to find any correlation between typing speed and piano playing (at least on the music sight reading aspect). Whether hand-eye coordination of typing translates to good piano playing while sight reading music and/or vice versa....

Years ago when I worked I could type around 90 wpm. I hardly ever made a mistake. My work caused me to type on IBM Selectric II, electric typewriter most of an 8 hour day so I had plenty of practice. I retired from work 43 years ago, however, I am still fast but not as fast or accurate as before.
