Lute & Guitar
July 27, 2022
Do you see yourself as left-handed or right-handed? Did you learn to play your instrument "left-handed" from the start?
I'm left-handed and played the guitar "left-handed" from the beginning. It just felt natural. Luckily I had a very tolerant teacher.
How did you come by your instruments?
I had to order all my lutes for left-handed players.
What are your experiences with left-handed playing in orchestras and ensembles?
In an ensemble it looks incredibly beautiful when a left-handed person and a right-handed person play together.
Do you have any left-handed students?
I've only had one left-handed student so far. The right-handed ones do everything mirror-inverted at the beginning, but they get used to it. That never happened to me as a student because I always had right-handed teachers and duo partners.
I imagine it's similar for tennis players. ;)
