I have a prospective student who is an adult, left-handed beginner, and she wants to learn to play a left-handed violin. She says that everyone she has spoken to has advised her against it, but she really wants to do it this way. We have discussed the issue of lefties playing violin on this site before. There are lots of lefties here, and they said that they play violin the same way that right-handed people do. I have two questions: First, since this woman is an adult who has never played violin before, what is your advice? Second, are there left-handed violins which are made differently from the commonly used ones?
