Day 2 : Hand independence in piano playing

I haven't gotten back to practising piano after my graduation performance and as a part of my advent calendar, I wanted to get back to it.

Today, I found a video on YouTube which shows a series of exercises to gain hand independence. Basically, we play staccato on the left and legato on the right and then vice-versa. Then, change the beats on one hand while playing normally on the other. More in the video below:

PS: I couldn't read up on jQuery plugin documentation today. I'll post the second part of authoring jQuery plugins in one of my later posts.
