A collection of studies have discovered a link between left-handedness and artistic ability in music and art. After all, some of the greatest artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were lefties. In the musical field, many lefties can get discouraged when they pick up a guitar or woodwind instrument and it just doesn’t feel right for them. Hence, they put it down and forget about it. Don’t let that happen.
Luckily, there are plenty of instruments reversed for lefties and many famous left-handed musicians have found their way to success. Kurt Cobain, Phil Collins, Paul McCartney, and Jimi Hendrix are a pretty good start to the list. Below, we have gathered a collection of left handed instruments as well as instructional books that provide pictures and explanations taken from a left handed perspective.
Pro tip: The recorder is a great choice for left-handers when they are just starting out. This is because the left hand is dominant and is positioned at the top of the instrument, closest to the blow hole.
