    This is long, please bear with me. I've been playing the piano for around ten years now, eight of which I've done classical music and finished with grade 5.

    My left hand is very easily my weaker hand, I can do crazy stuff with my right, even played the first part of Flight of the Bumblebee for a recital once. But my left hand is as atrociously bad. I have no trouble playing normal classical pieces or holding chords for jazz/blues. But it is no where close to the skill on my right hand.

    As a result of which sometimes I find, for even simple scales, the fast speed with which I can do them on my right, I'm unable on my left. Rufus MapQuest UpToDate


    Especially, I have very little control over my fourth and little fingers on my left hand, especially while doing runs or scales. And consistently, my fourth finger on the left hand is my least used finger.

    Please, any and all help will be appreciated. Do I practice scales, finger exercises, what? Please, please help.
