Everybody can do it!
by: Ido from www.piano-play-it.com

Hi Lin,

We are very happy to know that you find our site very helpful for you.

One of the confusing issues of the piano reading is that it consists of two different clefs: the G clef for the right hand and the F clef for the left hand. It takes time to get used to this.

Most people are right-handed so when they begin learning the piano they get difficulty moving their fingers of the left hand. I recommend you The Best Piano Exercises for Beginners . These exercises are very important for you at this stage. They include the left hand, the right hand, and the coordination skill.

Regarding the rhythm, everybody(including you) has a sense of rhythm due to our heart beat. However, there are many different patterns of rhythm and it takes time to learn how to play them. The best thing to do is to listen and to imitate. Our site is special because we offer theory lessons as well as video tutorials which explain exactly how to play a song, composition or any exercise.

We are about to publish unique books including lessons and videos which will give you the exact answers for what you need.

Stay in touch and don't hesitate asking us further questions.

Know where you are, and the left hand will come along.

You have a lot more rythym than you give yourself credit for having. Try listening more, and taping out the beat of songs just using your left hand or even your foot. Do this until you establish the beat. You'll be amazed at how much rythem you actually have.

One of the most important aspects of playing music is to count out loud, ALWAYS... If you establish this habit early it will not let you down. For 4/4 time signatures count, 1 2 3 4. Don't forget to count the rests. You can never get left hand playing down if you don't keep track of where you are. The bars in music are called "Measures" for a reason. You must measure and keep track of where you are within the music. Once established in these methods of keeping track of where you are within the music it becomes much easier to synchronise the left and right hands.

Most beginners shun this practice because they think it easier to just guess and play, but unless well established in the ability to gauge where you are within the music it becomes near impossible later on to accomplish anything; including coordination with the left hand.

I am expert by no means, and I am learning to play myself, but I sincerely hope what I have mentioned will be of help to you.
