Is it possible to train skills in a lucid dream?

I don't know if this is the correct forum for this.
I have studied music since I was 12. I know music theory, and I have been playing the guitar for about 7 years. I am very good at it.
I am now taking the piano, and I love it, so I was wondering if it's possible to practice instrumentation in a lucid dream? I do not have that great a control over my dreams, but if I ever get to the point where I have a very focused lucid dream a few nights a week, do you think that it's possible to practice things during the dream?

Of course. You can practice everything, from sports, to arts, to math calculations... everything. I too am a musician and i played some shows in my dreams. I am also a comedian and i did some standup comedy in my dreams. It was very helpful for me to test some material and, most of all, some physical comedy that i found funny.

Nice! Thank you for answering.
I also found this article, which further proves that practicing in dreams is beneficial:

Now all I have to do is get good at lucid dreaming! ;)

Learn to control the dream environment first and then practice whatever you want in the dream world.

I know a lot of people who have solved complex problems in lucid states.

Especially concerning video games(the 8bit titles especially have been known to cause altered brain states, if you want to try this out for yourself... play tetris 30 minutes before bed.) I've known people to map out the old Zelda game in their mind in a lucid state and have the dream be accurate enough to guide them to the real location.

I attempted practicing a monologue in a dream once. I could not control my voice at all and it was very difficult.

I remember reading in Daniel Love's book 'Are you dreaming?' (and also some places on the web) about research that has been done into practicing/rehearsing in the lucid dream-state. They would get the test-subject (who were experienced lucid dreamers) to perform a task or activity (I remember one of them being a flying kick) before the experiment and again after practicing this same thing while dreaming and their performance significantly improved.
I remember the final conclusion being that practice while dreaming is most definitely helpful, but it requires real-life practice afterwards to really help reinforce the newly learnt/improved skill in the brain for the long term.

Yes it is possible to practice during a lucid dream or in the dream state. Music resides in the 4th deminsion and so does the dream state. Also you can access the masters who have passed. If you want to prcatice with Mozart during your dream state all you have to do is set your intention before you go to sleep. In other words just ask for it before bed and it will be.

Are you sure? The 4th dimension is widely regarded as temporal.

I once practiced holding a speech in a lucid dream.

I started teaching a class about lucid dreaming, within the lucid dream.

This was a humorous and miraculous experience.

The only thing that can be difficult in a lucid dream is writing.

I tried solving a mathematical equation on paper in a lucid dream, and I couldn't see my own writing.

But singing and making music is a definite possibility in a lucid dream,
