Removing background noise (people talking & playing piano) from interview audio

Hello all! I am editing an interview right now for a video about a worship arts music program at my school and I'm having some trouble with the audio. Kids were playing piano in the background and being loud and I really want to remove it to improve the interview. I'm editing in Final Cut Pro X, and I know a little bit about EQing but not enough to do something more complicated like this. Does anyone know of any plugins or effects that live in FCPX that I can use to do this? I also have Adobe Audition CS6, but I have never used it and haven't found many helpful things to fix the audio. If anyone knows how to use Audition, do you know how to remove this kind of background noise? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, thanks a lot!!

You can do it with audition. Noise reduction, and you select the part of all noise, not piano and you capture. Accept and vualà!, you have de audio clean.

what you are asking about is not as easy as it sounds and im going to talk about preventing it next time. You need a Shotgun for your DSLR with different pick-up patterns so that you can change the pattern depending on your shooting environment so consider that your next investment if you don't have one already. if you never recorded in WAV there is little you can do at this time. Noise Reduction wont work on dynamic frequencies so a noise reduction plugin wont necessarily work. Still give it a shot but dont expect much.
