Ready. Go. Pause the video here and practice that much. You might need to do it much, much slower than this or you might be able to go faster. One thing I want you to keep in mind always is that you want to plan what you're going to play, don't play and then evaluate whether it was right or wrong. I mean obviously if you make mistakes, you will do that.

But you want to anticipate where you're going and tell your fingers to go there. Let's do measure four. I'll play it first. Watch now right hands, again here. Let's do that together right here on second finger on E, left hand, fifth finger on C. Here we go play together. And now one more time.

All right, there's really no hurry, just whenever you're ready, pause the video here and practice that on your own. Now we're really working on independence of the hands. Don't worry if it takes you a while to get the coordination. There are so many physical and mental components that need to work together when we play hands together, and you need to be patient with yourself to allow all these processes to fall into place and then to feel comfortable and after that it feels like second nature. Be patient. Stick with it.

Keep practicing and you will definitely get better at it.
