You will want to start out with this step very slowly. Try playing with both hands together… you can do it if you go slowly.
Feel the form of your hand(s) as you play in this stretched out position and as they move across the keyboard. Allow yourself and your hands to “learn” this form as you practice each day.
Accuracy is the main goal here. You don’t want to hit extra notes with your other fingers while moving up and down the keyboard. Aim to play just the two octave notes in each hand. Yes, your hand will be jumping all over the keyboard and this is one reason that this is such a great warm-up exercise. It will get more comfortable each day... just keep at it!
