楽器が弾けるようになりたいと思っていてピアノはポピュラーで教室が多いからって英語でなんて言うの?

初めて受ける講師との自己紹介の時「ピアノを習い始めました」と言うと、「どうしてピアノを選んだの」と聞かれる事が多いのですが質問に書いた様に言いたいのですが上手く言えません

  • It has always been my dream to play a musical instrument and besides, piano teachers are two a penny.

  • Piano was my instrument of choice because I've always wanted to play a musical instrument and besides, piano teachers can be found on every corner.

1. It has always been my dream to play a musical
instrument and besides, piano teachers are two a penny.
If something has always been your dream then it's a wish
that you had or would like fulfilled. The phrase, "two a
penny" means that it is something that is very common
and not difficult to source.
Example sentence: Tall, thin models are two a penny
in Hollywood.

2. Piano was my instrument of choice because I've always
wanted to play a musical instrument and besides, piano
teachers can be found on every corner.
The phrase, "instrument of choice" means that this is what
you selected/chose/opted for. The phrase, ''can be found on
every corner" means all over or everywhere.
Example sentence: A beggar can be found on every corner
in Bengal.

  • Piano is popular, so there are lots of places to take lessons.

All of these phrases convey your key information: you play the piano, it's a popular instrument, and a lot of places offer piano lessons. The third phrase is probably the most simple.

Knowing how to play an instrument is a great advantage. Some people use this advantage as a hobby while others use it as a career. You can teach music or play in a band. There are many opportunities.
This sentence explains that you know playing the piano is popular and that you didn't have any problems finding a teacher to teach you how to play

  • One reason I started learning to play the piano is because it is popular.

  • The piano is a great instrument to express myself through music.

One way to say there are many places that offer lessons, is to say there is easy access to lessons. This means that teachers are common and there is no difficulty to find lessons.
You can express the popularity of playing the piano with saying, "One reason I started to learn the piano is because it is popular". Some examples of answers as to why you play piano could be that you want to express yourself with music. The piano is a way for you to express your creative side through music.

1- This is a simple "because" sentence explaining your motivation to learn how to play piano and the fact that it was a popular instrument at the time when you made your decision.
2- This is a similar sentence in its meaning.
3- In this example, you are first explaining the circumstances (piano lessons were popular) and then you provide the outcome (so I chose piano)

When asked why you started playing the piano, you want to explain the reason: you wanted to be able to play an instrument, and because the piano is popular, and there are many places you can take lessons. In that case, one of the above suggestions may be appropriate. There are always diverse ways of saying something and it is necessary to consider factors such as: nationality of the listener, body language and appropriacy when forming your response or conversing.

  • I've always been determined to play a musical instrument, and since piano teachers are a dime a dozen, I chose to play the piano.

    play icon

A good expression to use that suggests that one has a strong desire to do something is "determined." This would be said if the goal is a high priority.

"A dime a dozen" is an idiom that means that there is a large amount of something, though it could possibly be taken as a way to express that the value of something is low, so it is important to be cautious when using this idiom to avoid causing offense to anyone.
