    Summary: I play the piano for fun I can play with my dominant hand just fine but I need help being able to play with 2 hands at once and I'm asking for tips or advice

    I got this electronic piano with 36 White keys and 25 black Keys I've had it since I was 7 never really started getting interested untill I was 11 so I've been playing for around 2-3 years I've taught myself for majority of my time playing piano by looking up songs on YouTube and trying to play them but I can't play with my left hand it feels unnatural to me I do not know why does anybody have any tips on how to play with your left hands correctly?

    Practice scales, slowly. Accent each note. Then add in the right hand. Start very slow. Play with a metronome. THen play faster bit by bit. I have a bit of experience with this. My left hand is alot weaker then my right hand. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Hanon's book of excersises. It is called The Virtuoso Pianist In Sixty Excersises for the Piano. This has really helped me alot.
