Maybe you 2 should move in together since you're brothers and all and one do bass clef and other treble clef and solve both your problems with doing both hands. Cool

Hi,

I started learning piano last week and have also had troubles playing with both hands together.

I made up some drills to help with the coordination. Fortunately, I have gotten better with these drills and can play with both hands, but now it's only for these drills. When I try something new with both hands, it's like starting over again. I'm hoping time will take care of that, but I need some new drills.

The drills I've done so far:

Drill set 1 - C Major Scale:

Left hand plays slow scale for 1 octive going up.
Right hand plays 3 notes for every 1 note on the left - it goes 3 octives, so you need to start on very low notes on your piano. I only use fingers 1-3 on right hand all the way up.

Variations:
- Play scale going down - I can do this now too

- Reverse hands (3 notes on left for every 1 on right)- I have only just started this one, but is as difficult as when I started the very first one.

- Reverse direction of hands (left going up, right going down and reverse) - I only just now thought of this one but sounds tough to me.

- Also doing only 2 notes on right for every left hand note. I can do this up and down for right hand. Also, because the right hand scale is now only 2 octives, I would suggest working on incorporating the remaining fingers 4 & 5 on the top of the scale. I haven't yet tried to reverse hands.


Drill Set 2 - any scale

Play a simple melody with left hand while right hand is going up scale one octive. Eventually was able to go back down with right as well. Still working with other variations on this.

Example with C major scale:

R - C D E F G A B C
L - C _ _ C G _ G_


That's all I've got so far.

Any other suggestions for R/L hand drills to improve coordination / cooperation between my hands?
