That would be weird, I had some teachers who looked at me strange for a moment but thats it.. (they werent as understanding when it came to eating though ).. Making someone play the other way is well strange.. It would be my opinion that lefties are often more suited to being ambidextrous just out of necessity in a righty world, and if I have to teach I do it righty style..The Dank wrote:Has anyone else experienced something similar, where a West African teacher has insisted that a student play with a certain hand pattern, regardless of hand dominance?
That can be really confusing trying to play phrases reversed if there is handing involved, but its a good challenge.. leading flams off the right is hard to get at first and i always need to keep practicing that..michi wrote:The only time I've heard him say that a left-hander should play right-handed is for ballet-style unison performance breaks. For those, the uniform handing is required for aesthetic reasons.
