2 VS 3: It’s ‘Not Difficult’!

No, literally: it’s “Not Di-Fi-Cult”. I was blown away by this simple solution to the challenge of playing straight notes VS triplets (also known as 2 vs 3) on the piano. Essentially, when taking a section of RH playing triplets and LH playing straight notes, the first two notes land together, and the next three notes (alternating RH-LH-RH) follow, to the rhythm of the phrase ‘Not Di-fi-cult’.


Amazing!! I tried this with a student this week, and it took something tedious and difficult to practice, into a problem solved. So pleased!
