Abstract

A violin was set up in reverse, with bridge and strings rearranged. The project involved recording an expert player's reactions to learning 'left-handed', i.e. experiencing what it is like to be a beginner again. The reversed violin was also used publicly to demonstrate to learners how relatively unpolished the expert's performance was on the 'reversed' violin, compared to on their own violin.
