Your Hands

Perhaps you have wished from time to time that you were left-handed, as I have.

News Flash:   being left-handed is not an advantage in piano playing!  I have this on irrefutable authority.

Why?

Since you asked ;), left-handed players’ left hands still take longer to learn parts.

Being left-handed makes turning pages with the right hand harder because the right wrist doesn’t flip as fast.  Typically, a left-handed player will move the music way over to the left, then turn with the left hand.

What’s your take on being left-handed?  Advantage?  Please share your thoughts in the comment section below!
