Hand Independence Exercises for Piano (using Sixteenth Notes) - PART 6


► Support us on Patreon (5$) Develop hand independence for Piano with sixteenth-note exercises by Jason Zac. In this lesson, we use a Sixteenth note time feel and play the popular rhythm pattern “Tresillo” or “Pop Clave” in the left hand. Along with this, we play a simple melody in the right hand using a syncopated feel.
