Tony is more cultured than you are
Music brings people together, so they say. It has been a pretty major part of civilization throughout history, but we can’t ignore the fact that the highly skilled musicians of today were indeed huge music nerds back in the day. Perhaps Tony is just a bit more cultured than the rest of us.
However, being a nerd is not an effect of studying piano regularly every day but rather the cause of it. Hilarious as this answer is, it’s still wrong. Keep your head up, fictional Tony. One day, you’ll be a nameless pianist with a small following on YouTube.
