How to play Piano?

For me the piano is really a instrument extraordinary and generally a piano is played by pressing the keys with both hands.

Actually the standard piano has 88 keys, the 3 foot pedals also has particular functions. The pedal on the right is known as damper, stepping on this causes all the keys to vibrate or hold.
