How long have you been playing the piano?

Greetings,

I'd like to know the most natural way to ask someone how long they've been doing something in Spanish.

Would you ask, "¿Cuánto tiempo tienes tocando el piano? or would it be better to say "¿Hace cuánto que tocas el piano?"

Mil gracias,

Conan

    Hola, Conan. La primera no me suena natural. La segunda está bien, pero sería más habitual por esta zona decir ¿Cuánto hace que...?
    Saludos.

    In fact, here in Spain we say the sentence "¿Cuánto tiempo llevas tocando el piano?

    That is exactly how we say it
