"Ode To Joy" - Both Hands Together

Illustration #1

In Illustration #1 above, the gold circles show which notes in the right hand get played with each chord in the left hand. The rule is: if the notes line up vertically, then they get played together at the same time.

If you're new to YouTube, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the two icons I have marked with arrows below. The "Enlarge Screen" icon should be used all the time, and the "Playback Speed" icon should be used if you need to slow down the tempo of video.

Video Lesson #3

Ode To Joy - Both Hands Together

In this video, you will learn how to play both hands together. I tell all of my students when they're learning a new song, to take their time. The slower you go, the faster you'll progress. (Watch Video). Move on to the next lesson when you feel that you've mastered "Ode To Joy".

I've done my best to make these online lessons as affordable as possible. After you've completed the 7 Free Lessons, it's just $12/month - that's a total of $144 for the entire year. Most piano students pay that amount every single month.

I'm sharing this information with you so you can relax, take your time and enjoy the learning experience.

  • It's very easy to move very quickly through these first few lessons - but for the best results possible, you're going to want to spend a good 3 to 4 days on each lesson. At the rate of $1.50 per lesson, you should definitely be able afford to take your time.

During the time that you spend on each lesson, you should be watching and listening to each video, multiple times every day. This will allow your mind to absorb the rhythms. The more you listen, the easier it will be for you to play each song exactly as it is written in the sheet music!
