Is the local factor anything to do with the climate? Or some social or economic factor?
By "in a particular way" I had in mind that for some reason he had to practice in a way that would be considered unusual eg malking him to favour a particular hand more than the other, or favour shorter or longer pieces of music.

Is the local factor anything to do with the climate? Closer to this, but may lead to FA. Or some social or economic factor?

By "in a particular way" I had in mind that for some reason he had to practice in a way that would be considered unusual e.g. malking him to favour a particular hand more than the other, or favour shorter or longer pieces of music. Yes, his style of practice is unusual in that sense.

My FA: am I wrongly assuming that he is alive? I cannot offer a straight answer to "unusually hot/cold" without a yardstick, as it might lead to an FA.

Is he a living person? No.
A fictional person? Yes!
A cartoon character or such? Not really.

Does he get paid for playing the piano? Does he do it as a hobby? The latter.
Is he a child? No.

Is the time of year relevant? No.
