What Does L.H. Mean? (Piano Music)

by Madison
(U.S.)

Under my treble clef music (for right hand) it says L.H.

Does that stand for left hand? I can't think of any other thing for it to stand for. But that music is impossible to play with the left hand if you're also covering the bass clef part.

ANSWER

Hi, Madison--

"L.H." means Left Hand. I really can not give you specific advice without seeing the music.

You could try to get a JPG of the section of music and then send it with your question. Then I would be able to be of more help.

Thanks! So it's pretty much saying to play with the left hand?

Here's a link to see the music,

It's Dawn from Pride and Prejudice.
The L.H. is on the very first bar. I tried playing that measure with the left hand, and it's possible, but playing with the right hand is still easier. It's the only L.H. in the entire piece.

ANSWER

Hi, Madison--

Play it with your RH if you want. How are you handling the 2 against 3 in the measure after that?
