comment What exactly does practising scales teach?
I wish the answers paid more attention to this part of the question: 'what specifically it teaches you that doesn't come from playing music.`

comment When practicing on my instrument - which is more important - quantity or quality?
i agree. ideally sticking to just a couple bars until those bars are perfect, then picking the next set of tricky bars. if the piece is at your level, not all the bars will need to undergo "rigorous treatment"

comment What is the terminology for how we identify numbered notes like C4, E3, D6, etc?
I dunno. It may say "scientific pitch notation" on that wikipedia page. But I've never ever heard anyone else use that term. I'm not Mr. Allknowing about musical terms, of course. But don't expect everyone you meet to know what the heck you're talking about if you use that term. Also, keep in mind that it makes more sense to specify the octave first as it qualifies WHICH C# you're talking about. Things sort better in a text file if you use 4c for middle C, for example. (Not that that matters a great deal. And C4 is a standard way to say it).

comment Tempo, time signature and note lengths
Also keep in mind that if your tempo comes from a midi file, that note length will always be a quarter note regardless of what the sheet music notates it as. Technically in microseconds per quarternote which translates to quarter notes per minute

comment What electronic keyboard can I upload music to play on it?
also, the lights only tell you that you're already TOO LATE at hitting a note. Use software like Synthesia or PianoCheetah to see notes on the screen instead. And buy a real keyboard - the ones that have those lights are totally cheap and crappy.

comment Can someone learn practicing piano with a MIDI keyboard?
It's not so much that you need more muscle strength for a true keyboard. More that your hand can't rest stress-free on the lite keys - you have to physically hold them up. And stress-free is a big deal playing piano. You also have more delicate control over weighted keys.
