Lesson Three: Putting the hands together can be challenging at first. Be patient with the changes in the left hand against the triplet scale passages in the right hand. Take care when putting these two hands together. You may have to slow down and review the materials presented. The fundamental concept is that the left hand is always your home base; therefore, your right hand is subject to changes because of its melodic role in the music. The coordination of these elements is very fundamental and has to be solid. Practice slowly at first. Make certain you are constantly listening to the sounds you are making. Your brain is evaluating your progress at any given moment. Have fun!
