Can you name the most ignored skill in early piano education? It’s certainly not note reading and it’s definitely not rhythm reading; it’s hands-together coordination.
Hands-together coordination is essential to playing the piano and yet it is rarely mentioned in method books. Instead, one day students are presented with hands-separate piano pieces and then with the turn of a page, hands-together music pops out of nowhere.
Needless to say, this is quite frustrating for young children. So when we sat down to write the Wunderkeys Primer Piano method books we made hands-together education an integral part of the material. To provide further practice, today we’re sharing a printable activity that will have your primer-level piano students rocking some hands-together rhythms!
