The more you play the piece, the more your hand remember and you will be fine.

Yes, a week after my initial post I can confirm, as everybody would expect it, that having played the piece again much more often and of course especially concentrating on the weak measures, that it´s getting better. The trend is going towards sticking with the eyes on the hands throughout the difficult measure, and keeping them there until the next phrase/pattern begins, the start of which [the start of the changing layout, as some of you would call it] is more easy to find in the sheet. There my eyes jump into the sheet again. Just glancing quickly towards my hands still confuses me too much.

I'm struggling with this right now too. I have a tricky measure that has a big old chord that's hard for me to land on cleanly in the left, at the same time as a two octave jump in the right. So, I'm wanting not only to look down at the keyboard, but to look in two places at once. It ain't working!

I'll try to memorize those couple bars and find myself an easy "resume reading" spot on the page. Thanks for that advice. And as for the split vision, I guess it's really just practice, practice, practice!

I get this a lot, LizAnne.

The trick is to briefly look where you're going to go just before you go, by about a beat or two, and the hand goes there just as if you were still looking although in my case that may be from years of experience but I don't remember ever having a problem in that area.

I once had a leap that was driving me nuts, and I put a sticker on the key so I could feel it. Then I got used to it and the sticker came off.
