You can say Ella le gusta tocar el piano, la guitarra, la bateria y le encanta cantar

 

or

 

Le gusta tocar piano, guitarra, bateria y le encanta cantar --->in Spanish this sentence would be more common

Sorry but only one person is close to the real translation (marqui),

you have to write in there the definite articles:

"A ella le gusta tocar el piano, la guitarra, la bateria y le encanta cantar"

That is the way to say it in Spanish from Spain.

How do you translate the following into Spanish?: "She likes to play the piano, guitar, drums, and loves to sing!"

"A ella le gusta tocar el piano, la guitarra y la batería, y le encanta cantar!"

The English word "play" has two main translations into Spanish. One is "jugar", e.g. "play tennis" translates into "jugar al tenis"; and the second one is "tocar", e.g. "play the guitar" translates into "tocar la guitarra".

"Me encanta" is a bit more emphatic than "me gusta", so you may use it as an option to translate "I love to play the guitar" into "Me encanta tocar la guitarra", instead of "Amo tocar la guitarra".

I am not as fluent in Spanish as I'd like to be as I only had four years of it back in high school thirty years ago.  But, I still have my English/Spanish Dictionary and my 501 Spanish Verbs around and try to keep up on it as much as I can.

Here's my stab at it:  "Ella gusta a tocar el piano, la guitarra, los tambores, y gusta a cantar."

Spanish is such a beautiful language and so essential here in Utah as many Hispanic people live here, and our state was part of Mexico at one time.  Many of our rivers, towns, and landmarks have Spanish names and it's nice to know what the names mean and how to read and pronounce them.

Good luck in your Spanish!

I'm going into Spanish 3 next year and we've covered this in class already so here's how .....     iElla le gusta tocar el piano, la guitarra, los tambores, y le ama cantar!

Le ama is conjugated for her as "ama" because it is an -ar verb who's "her" ending is -a so its ama and you don't use jugar for play because tocar literally means "to take" but jugar means like to play baseball not an instrument! i hope that helps you :)

As a  spanish teacher there are a few acceptable answers:

1. ¡A ella le gusta tocar el piano, la guitarra,  la batería, y le encanta cantar!

You can also say instad of the word ´encanta`you can substitute for the words ´ama` `fascina´

2. ¡A ella le gusta tocar el piano, la guitarra, la batería, y ama cantar!

3. ¡A ella le gusta tocar el piano, la guitarra, la batería, y le fascina cantar!

If you use "ella", you also need "a" in front of it.  "A ella" is the clarification for who "le" is.   "Le" is required.  "A ella" is clarifying.

Well, since no-one else has ventured a guess, I think I'll throw my hat in the ring!:

¡Ella tiene gusto de jugar el piano, la guitarra, los tambores, y los amores para cantar!

That's the best I've got but I am pretty sure it is accurate.  I know that the spelling is correct.  "tiene gusto"=like, "jugar"=to play, "el piano, la guitarra, los tambores"=piano, guitar, drums.  "amores"=loves cantar=sing.

You're killing me a bit here because I am supposed to use at least 90 words to answer each question, and your question was so simple I am not sure which 90 words I would use in order to make my answer longer.  Oh wait, there I go!
