I think I figured it out. I was looking to post an ad in the categories, but I can post one on the side or after to first post without having to choose a category. Seems simple. I don't know why I didn't see it before. That's for suggesting it.

I am progressing along with my pieces, but I have been a bit down of late because it seems that what I see the most is regression, not progress. My scales and arpeggios have been getting sloppier, and last week my teacher had me go back to a controll

It might be wise to take the time to find an independent technician to asses the piano for you. This way when the dealer tech comes you can better describe the symptoms of what is bothering you. Don't use piano tech talk to define what the problem is

To me, this is one of the hardest things to learn about playing a piano. At times, the hands have to work independently, yet in synchronization with each other. As M3G said, it takes practice and overcoming the awkwardness of it. Kind of like chewi

After being stuck on this one for a while, I learned it by separating each beat into either LH, RH, or BOTH. It was a little bit awkward, but it worked. Don't know if this answers your question though.

I hear you, but the jury is still out on whether "writing" with an ETD gives a better novel. I had a long talk with a representative from CyberTuner who was bashing TuneLab saying their machine was superior to all the others. After I drill
