Piano Practice Techiniques and Routine. Five Easy Tips. Get the learning materials along with this video! http://www.lessonsontheweb.com/piano-practice-techniques-and-routine—five-easy-tips—intermediate.html
A piano lesson for intermediate students. Looking for an even better way to learn than YouTube? Check out http://www.lessonsontheweb.com.
The items on this list are easy to understand, but putting them into your practice will take some work.
1. The first key of good practice is consistency. It is better to practice a little bit everyday than a whole lot for just one day. Your brain will be able to pick up smaller pieces of information at a time and consistency will allow you to develop good practice habits. Just like exercise or brushing your teach, piano practice requires consistency.
2. Focus. Focus on what you are doing and make sure to turn off your phone, T.V. or whatever else may distract you. I also recommend you set a timer and stick to it. Don’t get up from the piano unless absolutely necessary!
3. Add some variety in to your practice so that you don’t get bored. You need to have consistency like I mentioned before, but you also need to change things up every once in awhile.
4. It is recommended that you get 15-30 minutes of practice a day for a beginner, 30-60 minutes for an intermediate and 2-4 hours for an advanced student.
5. ENJOY YOURSELF!
Some additional things you may want to add to your practice include hanon exercises, czerny exercises, scales, and arpeggios. It is also recommended that you practice with a metronome, which will help you keep time.

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.
