How To Fake Piano Skills

Playing the piano properly requires persistence and dedication. As this video from Australian video comedian Sam Tucker demonstrates, faking a facility with the instrument doesn’t require much more than the ability to keep your fingers a certain distance apart and a little chutzpah.

The technique boils down to keeping your fingers a fixed distance from each other (between two notes one octave apart) and then only playing on the black keys. You won’t be able to use it to play requests, but it could be a useful party trick.
