comment What components make military music especially rousing?
Are you talking about slower pieces like Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man or the theme from Oliver Stone's JFK? Or more upbeat Sousa marches like NReilingh talks about below?

comment How many hours of practice total are typical for different piano grades?
5000 to grade 8 would make sense and then another 5000 to professional level (whether sitting association + licentiate or not)

comment How many hours of practice total are typical for different piano grades?
(Australian but living in America at the moment.) Whether it's ABRSM, or AMEB or Trinity or whatever; I'm mostly interested in a ball park estimate. Or think of the question in reverse: at 100 hours, what sort of pieces are students typically playing? what about at 1000? or 5000?

comment How many hours of practice total are typical for different piano grades?
A previous question on this topic was closed as 'subjective' but this is a more specific, albeit related question that I hope is acceptable.

comment How to formulate a chord on the piano?
which notes from a scale form a chord isn't anything specific to a guitar or keyboard so I'm not sure I understand the question as asked. Are you asking how to voice a particular chord? e.g. which C, E and G to play if playing a C major chord?
