Reaching problem with one hand...greenspun.com : LUSENET : Everything About Teaching and Learning the Piano : One Thread
I have been learning the piano on my own for about two years and I have a few problems now. I have purchased a music CD of piano pieces in which was included all the sheet music, and this particular sheet music seems to be very accurate. I got to a point where I was supposed to play with the right hand at the same time a C sharp and the G of the following octave. There was no way I could reach that (it is just about 11 notes) so I listened to the track to make sure and indeed, the two notes are played correctly, and yes, there is only one player. It also seems impossible to reach that C sharp with the left hand. This is the second time I have found this kind of thing, and I am sure that it is not just that you need large hands, because I have already learned other musics from this CD and had no such problem. I would really want to finish learning that particular piece, so if someone could help me out, I would be very grateful.
