Playing the violin “left-handed”

Maria supports students who want to learn to play the violin using a “left-handed” instrument. As a right-handed violinist she teaches left-handed students in a “mirrored” way. It is important to be well informed when making this decision, but nowadays we approach left-handedness in a different way than before: at school and in sport, as well as in music. There are violin makers who build and rent out left-handed instruments for adults and children. Left-handed violinists and cellists who started to learn right-handed and changed to left-handed playing talk about playing with more ease. On the platform for left-handed playing musicians you can find more information (German and English) and interviews with musicians who either played on left-handed instruments from the start or changed to left-handed playing later.
