I’m pissed off that they’re screwing with the canon for no reason now. Harry doesn’t know how to play piano in the canon, so he sure as hell shouldn’t be playing piano here.

What, you don’t remember Harry going to the public library to get out a book to learn how to play air piano while confined to his cupboard under the stairs? Maybe it is just a compulisve need to try to play chopsticks…

It is obviously at the beginning when they go to get Slughorn because there is a piano.

Another thought: Remember, Steve Kloves is back. He does have a history of things like talking shrunken heads. We should be prepared for non canon material because clearly the pages of the novels as written by Ms. Rowling could NEVER provide enough content to fill a two hour movie.

I would have loved it if any of the trio had musical talents in the books. I guess practice on an instrument takes up too much time from solving mysteries and fighting Voldy. However, I don’t think we’ll get a glimpse into a secret Lizst or even another Edward.

Is this another thing he inherited from Voldemort: the ability to play piano?!

Yeah that is strange, they shouldn’t have him playing, hopefully he is just looking at it or hitting a few keys, cause who can resist when around a piano, you have to hit a few keys even if you can’t play. I did see several photos in that group that I hadn’t seen before so yay.

This photo is certainly curious, as I do not recall Harry as even being capable of playing the piano. I cannot wait to see the context in which this still appears from the actual movie.

ooh… I see… Harry is at Slughorn’s house, suddenly breaking into an amazing piano performance. Slughorn sings soprana, and than Dumbles comes in singing alto. Lovely.
