I'm left-handed person that went to a right-handed teacher in order to learn some drumming. I'm being told that we'll be playing open-handed on a RH setup in future (I had no point, what does it mean on that moment). I agreed and we started.
Almost 2 years in, I am able to play some not really hard drum solos. Progressing isn't easy, but it is progressing.
However, when it came to drum-kit, I was playing usual "cross-hands" on that setup. Teacher said that he decided to go on this way. I did my own research and found all this info about LH setup.
What if my progress will be faster and more natural if I switch to LH setup? My teacher recommended staying with the RH-crossed way. But I wanted to give it a try, and took a break to test it on my electronic drumset at home.
Now I'm relearning everything from scratch with LH-setup. I cannot say it feels super-easy, but it definitely goes faster than RH kit learning. But it could be just overall experience, not setup. I'm still in the testing stage, and I feel, that it's time to choose.
There are many opinions on the Internet and I couldn't find one definitive answer.
I'll be playing at home only, so there is no "that guy on shared kit" pro-reason of a RH kit.
Found one interesting material about teaching drums for a LH people.
"Also, once a student has established his kit setup it should not be changed as this can also create problems".
Is it worth switching now? Or should I just relax and go on with RH setup?
