We have been discussing this month the best ways to improve our two-handed playing on the piano.
First, we’re going to go over four different pieces at varying levels of difficulty to show you how to progress through pieces according to where you are in your learning.
The second thing we want to go over is how and where you can find two-handed piano pieces online that will be easy enough and fun for you to play. I will show you in the following video how to search for these pieces online.
Next we’re going to look at some even more difficult pieces by J. S. Bach that are commonly used by pianists to increase their two-handed playing.
Remember that when first starting to play two-handed pieces I recommend that you find simple melodies and chord patterns before moving on to more difficult rhythms and contrasting melodies in each hand.
Bach is well known for something called “counterpoint” which simply means more than one melody line being played at the same time. This means that each hand is playing its own melody…there isn’t one supporting the melody line with chords, like we had in the beginning.
Next week we will finish this series on improving your two-handed piano playing with specific tips and the best ways to practice everything that we’ve gone over this month so you can overcome and challenges that you have now or may encounter in the future.
