Q: play the piano ve play a piano ve play piano arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Very interesting question!! They are all very similar! They can mean the same thing, but there might be a very very small difference.

"Play the piano" = "Play piano"
ピアノを弾く。 This is a very general sentence. "Piano" is an abstract concept.
"I can play the piano" = "I can play piano." = 「ピアノが弾けます。」
Leaving out the "the" makes the sentence more casual, but they are the same.

"I can play a piano." is not common and it sounds a little unnatural, but it can mean the same as the other sentences.

Don't worry about these differences, though. Any combination will sound mostly natural! :)
Q: play it up ve play it down arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Here, to play it down means to try and make the event more subtle, to hide the event, and/or to divert attention to something else. To play it up means to emphasize it, make it bigger and less hidden, and/or to draw more attention to it.
