Hi all, if I want to say that someone is a good pianist with good piano skills, should I say that "he is good at piano" or "he is good at the piano"?

Many thanks! :)

    BrE speakers are more likely to say “good at the piano”. AE speakers are more likely to say “good at piano”

    I wouldn't use the phrase, which could mean several things.

    Just say she plays the piano well or she's good at playing the piano, for example.
    By piano skills:confused: you mean technique.

    (So you might write her (piano/pianistic technique is excellent/impressive.)
