Sometimes when I work on left hand only pieces and the melody is giving me difficulty, I will try these: 1. Play the melody super loud. Really over do the volume. 2. Play the melody with the right hand, the rest with the left to hear what final soun

I sit with my forearms pretty much parallel to the floor. Some famous pianists look too low to me--Gould, Horowitz, Pratt. Some too high--Barenboim, James Levine. It seems to me that prodigies and very talented little kids (and their teachers) can g
