The Illusion of Hand Independence - A Philosophical Approach - Piano Lesson (see description!)
The most common issue for those learning the piano is surely that of hand independence. The left hand does this and the right hand does that; major scales cause frustration, improvisation appears impossible. But fret not! There is a solution.

Any skill or art has smaller and smaller components and it is by mastering these smaller components that the greater skill becomes manageable. One of those smaller components regarding hand independence is actually not physical at all but a state of mind; a mindset which has overcome the noise of the ego, a mind which understands that we have ten fingers rather that two hands of five fingers.
Same philosophy but with more technical exercises: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBxk-fLxipo
By using the chromatic and major scales as a tool, as demonstrated in this video, learn how to master finger independence by mixing them into one 'big ten-fingered hand', to remove conscious interference by closing the eyes and to become a spectator to your hands rather than their interfering ruler.
