One of the most fun (and at the same time complicated) challenges we face when learning the piano, especially in the beginning, is using both hands.
Its a bit like brushing your teeth with one hand while washing the sink with the other hand at the same time.
Or remember when you were younger and learned how to pat your head with one hand and rub your tummy with the other hand at the same time?
Fun - but challenging - at least first!
Why do we have to use both hands when we play the piano?
When you first start to read notes, you're probably going to learn your right hand, which plays notes in the Treble Clef.
But then when we start to learn our left hand notes, we're in a totally different clef, where the notes are different on the staff. This is called the Bass Clef.
When we read notes from both clefs at the same time, we're playing from the Grand Staff, which looks like this.
Once we've learned the notes that each different hand plays on the Grand Staff, we're ready
to put them together! <--- This is the fun part!
Let's look at 7 ways that you can learn to play piano with both hands easier.
Remember...start slowly, begin with scales and easy finger exercises, and stay at it each day. You'll be amazed at how much easier you will be playing the Piano with both hands after a few weeks of using these steps.
And the reward that you get once you're conquered this, is a lot of fun and self-esteem at how much you've accomplished!
