The most important feature of a piano is
is that it produces sound when you strike it!
However, if you play it in a random way, it won't make a tune.
You must play with reasonable fingering and proper rhythm.
Also, if you don't learn how to apply the proper force, songs above a certain difficulty level will become unplayable.
It is especially tough to learn to play the piano brilliantly with a colossal sound, unless you learn it from a teacher.
In this article, I will explain the limitations of self-study and the barriers that can be broken through by learning.

You have to learn it from a teacher in order to produce the rollicking sound.
