I did a lot of work on my learning project, here is the right hand of Mercy, by Shawn Mendez, which is the piece I decided to play. I have been working on this for the past week and a half.
This week I starts on the left hand which is quite simple. So After going through it a few times I have started putting it together. It is not as easy as I thought it was going to be. Each hand alone is not bad but trying to multitask in a way is much harder. I looked at my hands quite a bit when learning so not being able to see what each hand is doing has been my challenge while learning it hands together.
This week I also tried exploring different twitter accounts that may help motivate me or give helpful tips and suggestions. One that I like the most is called Grand Piano Passion. It puts different tips and quotes involving piano. Another account that I started following is called TeachPianoToday which provided different links to different articles on their website that are sometimes useful. The last one that I started following is called Piano Mentor. This account post very frequently and I’m not sure if it is right for me yet but I am still going to give it a chance before I decide whether or not I am going to unfollow it. This account posts tons of different facts, statements, or quotes about piano and music, I wouldn’t say that it is helpful but some of the stuff that they do post is interesting to know.
This coming week I am going to continue to work on putting my left and right hand together. I am also going to take some tome to explore different blogs there might be about piano or music in general.
