Sweat on the piano: play the song with both hands

Advice

A common challenge for piano beginners is hand coordination, i.e. the ability to play with both hands simultaneously on the keyboard.

This exercise can be difficult at first, as it requires rapid and precise coordination between the movements of both hands, which can be complex for the brain. It therefore takes a lot of practice to acquire fluency and ease.

To optimize your learning with Snoop Dogg’s Sweat, we recommend dividing the piece into short sequences of a few seconds. Avoid long parts of 30 to 40 seconds, which can be too difficult to master at first. Start slowly with each short sequence, then gradually increase the pace as you gain confidence.

This gradual approach enables your brain to assimilate information efficiently, promoting lasting learning. Using learning tools such as tutorial videos or interactive applications like La Touche Musicale can also be beneficial in supporting your progress.
