When I learn harder pieces I read the music and practice hands separately then together. I find I cannot keep my eyes on the score because I am too busy looking down at my hands to see if they are going in the right direction. My teacher has never pointed this out and has never said keep your eyes on the page so you can follow the notes as you play. I look at the keys and then when I eventually look up at the score I have lost where I am at because I have not been following it.
In other words what I am doing is memorising the score which is fine because all concert pianists play from memory but one of my pieces I am learning to play, I have seen people look at the score and never look at the keys. I need to learn how to do this and they seem to play by watching the score and their fingers automatically go on the right notes without them looking.
Any ideas how I can perfect this? This girl hardly looks at the keys
