Well first of all you need to be able to play the sheet music for your left and right hand individually, so learn each hand and be able to play them without hesitation. use that scale on the link that I gave you if you need it. Once you have both hands down you can now start putting them together. if you give me a link to the peice I can furthermore help you.....
I would give you the link, but its a book I'm reading from. I can play both hands individually but I have to rely on memory to play them together (4 years of flute have paid off lol)
Thanks for your advise though ^^
I had the same problem when teaching myself. Just learn each hand's part seperately and then play the parts together. But this is easier said than done, so start with an easy piece. Get a "beginner's" piece that you know and start with that (I think I started with "Greensleeves").
If your having trouble still with playing the parts together, use a pencil and draw a line connecting notes that will be played at the same time; this helped me when I started out.
ive been playing a year and still cant hardly read the two at the same time. i think you can only do that when youve been playing a long time and can learn how to 'predict' the notes and chords and such. i just know that my eyes physically cant look at both lines at the same time, and bouncing my eyes up and down takes too long to play at a decent tempo and also makes me sleepy *yawn* ahahah.. but yeah, i just learn them separate and then put em together.
