Can a pianist deduct a home office?

Yes, if the room is used 100% for his self-employment business of being a pianist, he can deduct it as a home "office".

TurboTax asks the percentage of time that is spent conducting business at the home office. In this case probably 80% of the time is practicing in the home office while 20% is spent at different venues actually preforming. So I just enter 80% ?
