I took lessons for over 7 years and have recently started back up again playing. My problem is that I don't remember how to play a piece that has both Treble Clefs for both hands. The new peice that I got to play is "Where are You Christmas" and it has Treble Clef for both hands for almost the entire song. And the notes overlap each other. Can someone explain to me how to play this? Am I just looking at the left hand notes wrong?

thank you for any help you have for me!

I'd think it would be pretty much the same as you'd play it if the left hand were in the bass clef, your left hand is just farther up on the keys. For the overlapping parts, you'll have to carefully work out what the most appropriate fingering and hand motions are and stick with it.

I hope this helps!

Another possibility is that the right hand should be played one octave higher, which would be indicated with an 8ve sign.
