Quick question for anyone willing to help me out here. I can't seem to understand why there's a treble clef in the lower staff where you usually find the bass clef notes? Does this mean that everything beyond it is supposed to be only played with the right hand?

Welcome to the forums!

Even though there's a trebly cleff there, the lower staff is still, usually, played by the left hand. It's just that that the notes are so high up that it's just easier to change the cleff to the treble instead of writing tons of ledger lines. it's treble until cleffs switch again.

I see what your're saying, but the positioning of the hand is what confuses me the most. If you have the time check out the sheet music at the posted website.

Pretty strange music. It's basically just one note at a time, so you can play the whole thing with one hand anyway. But as pagnini said, with most piano music, the upper staff is for the right hand and the lower staff is for the left hand regardless of the clef.

looking at it now...

scrolling... scrolling...

When it switches to the treble cleff, you still play the lower staff by left hand,( and the upper staff is still played by the right). The left hand just moves up a bit for the treble notes ( I recomend moving your hand so that the 4 the finger is on middle C). The two Cs a few bars later played by 4th finger(Left Hand).
