Student or Learner
Does she play piano?
Has she plays piano?
How to ask whether she has learns piano or not?
On the subject of the correct form of a question, jasonree, 'Why the verb is in past tense?' should be 'Why is the verb in the past tense?'
(In BE, most people say 'Does she play the piano'.)

RE: MikeNewYork's message to MS330:
Are we non-teachers expected to wait for a teacher to answer first before we are allowed to contribute to the thread? Does this apply to all forums besides "Ask a Teacher"? (I have been away for a while, so I may have not noticed a change in the rules.)
In behalf of all my fellow non-teacher members, I respectfully request clarification. I shall suspend answering first while waiting for a ruling.
I think James always gives good examples to make something easier to understand.

The difference should be obvious, but apparently needs to be stated.
A native English speaker and VIP member with over 5,000 posts, such as James, can respond as soon as he likes.
An ESL student with less than 40 posts should wait more than seven minutes before hazarding a reply.
