Any tips/books/material that will help to play the piano without looking your hands or the keys?
It helps a lot when trying to sight read or thats what i have heard.

Any tips how to learn intervals efficiently?
Are there any good piano books about pedaling, body, correct fingering?

Paul.


Thank you so much Paul. The book is great.
About the playing piano without looking your hands. Im a memorizer obviously so when im learning to memorize a piece should i learn it to play it without looking at the keyboard at all. Will this improve the skill of not looking at hands or is there another way to practice this?

Sorry if you cant understand what im meaning. My english is not very good.
And again thanks for the book its great
