What undergrad music majors need to know before learning piano

Undergrad music majors do not want to learn to play piano.

They don't see the point. They are too busy with classes, and they'd rather practice their own instrument than the piano.

On the other hand, it is the rare professional musician who isn't happy to know how to play the piano, or who doesn't regret to not have learned the piano.

How about having students interview their teacher or a professional performer on their use of the piano in their professional life?

When students hear professional musicians talk about the importance of playing the piano, they can only become more convinced of the necessity of learning it, than when they hear that from pianists.
