How to solve the Piano Puzzle in Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village has plenty of puzzles to solve, many of which can be quite difficult to figure out. One of these puzzles comes in the form of a piano, and it's not immediately obvious what you're meant to do. Below I'll explain how to solve the Piano Puzzle in Resident Evil Village.

Resident Evil Village Piano Puzzle: How to solve the Piano Puzzle

Once you've entered the Opera House in Resident Evil Village, you'll be faced with a Piano Puzzle. Essentially, it's a case of playing the right musical notes to match the sheet music.

Note the orange orb to the left. We want that to overlap with the black orb of the note just below it.

Thankfully, there's no musical skill involved here. Press a key and you'll notice an orange orb appear on the sheet music. To solve the puzzle, you need to line up these orange orbs with the orbs of the notes displayed on the sheet music.

Clink away, there's no limit here.

You can press the keys as many times as you want, so hit them until they all match up nicely. Once you've matched them all up, Ethan will play the piece, and you'll get the Iron Insignia Key. This key is essential to progressing in the campaign, as well as unlocking some neat treasure too.

That's all for this page, but do check out our Statue Puzzle, Music Box Puzzle, and Treasure Map pages if you're unsure how to solve any of them.
