How to Play Piano With Both Hands
General Tips on Playing With Both Hands
1. Learn the piece, example, etc hands separate first, then put hands together.
2. Play SLOWLY
3. When first learning to play hands together, avoid examples with complicated rhythms.
Scales are a good way for beginners to develop dexterity and coordination when playing keyboard with both hands. This is because playing scales involves playing notes in synch with one another. Usually scales are played with the same rhythm in both hands, so no worries trying to play different rhythms and concentrating on notes at the same time.
Where should you start? Start with the C Major scale and learn it hands separate. Then try playing the scale ascending very slowly with both hands. Once you are able to play the scale ascending, learn the scale descending. Then play the scale ascending and descending. Learn 1 scale a week until you can play all the major scales slowly. Then gradually increase the tempo over weeks to achieve greater speed.
Here is a scale exercise. Start with C Major and play up the scale with half notes in the right hand while playing whole notes in the left hand. Then do the same but with half notes in the left hand and whole notes in the right had.
Are great for developing two handed dexterity between both hands. These are for playing in parallel meaning you are playing the same intervals at the same time. Try learning one a day or one a week until you learn them all. Play them slow at first then over weeks gradually increase the tempo.
These are highly recommended for practice playing different rhythms and pitches for each hand.

This is an issue that really gets me worked up sometimes…when people think that “it’s too late” to learn piano as an adult. I can tell you from experience it’s ABSOLUTELY not true.
I’ve seen time and time again adult beginner piano students absolutely kill it on the keys! But that being said, there are 3 key points that really separate the adult beginners who make it and the adult beginners who don’t. And that’s what I hope to cover in the video.
Basically, kids have some advantages. They have more free time. They have parents that encourage (or threaten!) them to practice. They have fewer other things going on.
But there are also some advantages you have as an adult! We’ll go over them more in the video. Think about those 3 keys and make sure you’re following each of them as an adult piano learner. It’s really what separates the ones that get good from the ones who quit.

He is assisted by his son and piano student, Antonio “Nio” Ajero who is using a third generation iPad to connect.
In today’s lesson, I am going to share with you 10 easy hacks that will help you learn piano pieces faster. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player, you will find these hacks helpful. Getting in micro practice sessions is a really helpful tip I can give you because not only will you get more practice time, your brain will better pick up the information in a shorter session. Obviously, you also want to become familiar with music theory. You should be able to identify and play scales, chords, and arpeggios. Learning to read intervals can also help since you can use them to read music much faster. If you are serious about learning how to play piano, you want to watch the whole lesson to learn all of the hacks.

This course is for adult beginners who’d like to learn the fundamentals of sight-reading piano music by mastering and understanding rhythmic notation. I designed this course around the rhythmic mastery. You progress through steps that slowly increase in difficulty and help you understand what is happening rhythmically in a piece of music. I try to keep things fun and I even wrote an original piece of music for you to play as you progress through the course.
