I grew up having keyboard lessons (age 8-15), and therefore have a vast number of chords memorized and can easily deal with chord changes with zero thought through memory alone.
Here is what I mean by a piece of keyboard music. I know all these chords and have them memorized and can instantly switch between them with my left hand.
15 years later, I can still do this, and my right hand is fairly strong and I am confident reading the treble clef and sight reading melodies. I am now (since September) however trying to learn the piano, and my left hand is significantly weaker than my right.
What I am looking for advice/tips on is:
- Sight reading on the bass clef.
- General tips on how to make my left hand better.
- Advice on whether or not I should work independently on left hand parts, and if so, suggestions on pieces that are actually fun to play.
In terms of my level, this is the most recent piece of learnt: https://musescore.com/user/2466621/scores/1463381
I can play this piece reasonably well, but do find a small amount of trouble in quickly getting around the chords in the left hand. The right hand I have pretty much mastered.
