comment How long would it take to learn to tune a piano?
Tuning in 5ths and octaves only does have an unfortunate side-effect, which is that if you make a mistake, it is perpetuated across the entire circle of 5ths. Tuning in 3rds gives you a chance to tune some notes anchored more closely to your A (or C if you use a C-fork)

If someone decides not to use a tuner, then either (A), they need a tuning fork for all 12 notes, or (B) they need to tune in increments. I can understand someone wanting to only tune in 5ths, and not 3rds, and I expect there are other good options.

comment How can I learn to sing and play an instrument (like Piano) at the same time?
At first, some slower songs, such as Over The Rainbow / What A Wonderful World, or some hymns. What I am hoping for is Busted by Ray Charles, but that of course is more difficult. Also, I do not usually use sheet music unless it is conveniently available. (music without paper) I am able to modify/simplify the piano side of things if necessary.

In the video lessons I took, a C fork was suggested, and the old man gave the reason he uses an A. When someone is reviewing your work, they will say "How's your A" and it is less common to say "How's your C". Of course if you are on your own it does not matter, and it is personal preference.
