I have been working daily on hand independence since starting my piano journey seven months ago. If there was a easy way to do I would have found it by now. As everyone says it is just a slow build up and neither did my 40 years of playing guitar give me any advantage. In my own experience I made some positive advancement when I recognized how weak my left hand fingers were and really concentrated on exercises to strengthen them.


Problems with piano are 90% psychological, the other 10% is in your head.

I disagree with the idea that your fingers are weak. You played the guitar for 40 years, so by now you must be an adult. I bet you can squeeze a ball much harder than a 12 year-old. But there are some fabulous 12 year old pianists.

(It has nothing to do with "poor strength". It's actually "poor technique" that's to blame. wink )
