comment Is “anyone” 人はいます or 誰でも?
誰でも is more like "whoever". Same with the other 〜でもs: いつでも → "whenever"; どこでも → "wherever"; etc.

comment Usage of noun-modifying である
Tangential question: the application of the description ピアニストである seems ambiguous. That is, it seems like it may be applied to either or 私の姉. Of course the context makes it clear, but in another situation, would there be a better way to specifically indicate the sister? Maybe 私のピアニストである姉? Although that sounds funny/wrong to me.
