Default Stupid question

I really shouldn't have to ask this question, but I'm going to anyway. Why on earth are there three pedals on a piano?!?! What do you use the middle and left ones for?????

far left is a 'soft' pedal to make a quieter sound. Middle is usually a type of sustain that sustains only the notes where the damper is raised when you pressed the pedal.

Sure you can suggest it. But I don't have his # so it won't do any good!

Well I wasn't intending to, jee just said that I was and I decided that I probably shouldn't argue with him. Thanks for answering my question! I think I really should go practice now, I haven't practiced hardly at all this week!
