# How to solve the piano puzzle in Silent Hill

The Silent Hill Piano Puzzle is a must-have puzzle in Midwich Elementary School to progress through the story.

## Steps

### Part 1 of 3: Finding the piano

#### Step 2. Enter the music cabinet

This office is located near the toilet, in the same corridor as the dressing room.

### Part 2 of 3: Finding Clues

#### Step 1. Look at the board inside the music cabinet

You will see a large piece of bloody white paper taped to the board.

#### Step 2. Examine the piece of paper

You will receive a hint titled "A Story of a Bird Without a Voice."

#### Step 3. Walk up to the piano and examine it

You will immediately notice that you can only press keys in the first octave, and when you try to press other keys, some of them will not produce a sound.

### Part 3 of 3: Solving the Puzzle

#### Step 1. Remember that the name of our tooltip is "A Story of a Bird Without a Voice."

This means that in this puzzle we will be pressing keys that do not make a sound.

#### Step 2. Play "D" or the second white key on the piano

The first line of the clue says that the Pelican is eager to get his prey - that is, he did not fly far - and also mentions white wings, a clue that the pelican has white wings. Therefore, the first note that you must press is the nearest white note that does not make a sound, that is, "D".

#### Step 3. Play "A" or the sixth white key on the piano

The second line says that the second bird, the pigeon, flew away as far as possible. However, the seventh note makes a sound, and since the dove is white, we automatically find the farthest white note without sound, which is "A".

#### Step 4. Play "B" or the fifth black key on the piano

The third line says that the third bird, the raven, flew higher than the dove. We already know that the raven is black and that the dove has landed on the last deaf white key, hence the raven will be the very last black key.

#### Step 5. Play "G" or the fifth white key on the piano

The fourth line says that the swan "sits" next to another bird. We also know that the swan is white, so this will be another white key. At this stage, there is only one deaf white key, which is next to another deaf key - this is the fifth key next to the sixth key, with a dove.

#### Step 6. Play "C" or the first black key on the piano

The fifth line says that the last bird, the crow, "quickly" stopped. We know that the crow is black, and a “quick” stop means that it has flown away not far, just like a pelican. Therefore, we need the first black key, since it is the closest deaf key to the left.
