Hey all. I've been practicing piano for about a month now and I am trying to improve my playing....

So far, all my practices involve playing exercies out of the Hannon book. Thats it lol .....I've gotten up to exercies 6 in the book and its been going well so far.

I've recently began practicing scales and that is going like crap for me.....For some reason, I cant play up and down a scale with BOTH my hands at the same time because I'm trying so hard to use the correct fingering for both hands. I have no problem when it comes to using one hand, but BOTH hands is a challenge for me. Any tips??

Also, I would like to hear how everybody else on the forum practices. What is your practice routine? The reason I ask this is because I feel like there is more I could be practicing than just Hannon and Scales lol.

Any tips and advice would be much appreciated.....thanks a lot in advance

hey there!!

I had the same problem at the beginning... you know, being perfectly able tp play the scales alone but then putting them together was horrible!!! what I found out that helps is to practice scales before you go to bed. sounds weird, but really, it seems to help. practice like 15 minutes before and then get up the next day and try it again. Its like your brain sorts your fingers out over night.

other things I do are really short pieces like twinkle twinkle litte star and stuff like that. you get them down surprisingly quick and theyre a good practice in sheet-reading and playing with two hands.

yes gd advice aendym ...also just work on 1 scale at a time with both hands ...once youve cracked it the nxt one bcomes a little easier ...but do slow and definite ..once you can go back and forwards with ease then, time to move on to nxt scale ..speed will develop with time ..and still keep doin your other exercises ...gl it will soon come to you Smile
