I don't know if this is off topic or not.

Has anyone heard about this beginner book titled Wright Pianoforte Tutor by Albert Oswald? It seems to be popular, only in India, although it's printed in UK. My tutor sings high praise of the book. Buy surprisingly I find not many mention of it on the net or on YouTube.

    It's a good question, but if you're asking how to find the book, that would be off-topic. – user45266 Apr 15 '19 at 15:00

This was a very common book in the UK 50 years ago, and it is still in print (see https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wright-Pianoforte-Tutor-Faber/dp/0571531768).

Actually, it was written by A H Oswald (who died in 1929). The "Wright" is not part of the author's name, but a pun on "right".

It is not used much now in the UK - there are more modern (and arguably better) alternatives.

I don't understand why you can't find it on the web. Google search will show many links to it.

  • What I meant to say was that most searches on Google pointed to South Asia, like amazon.in but not amazon.com. On the YouTube, few demo pieces of the book were all Indian. Whereas other books, like Alfred's or Suzuki has far more instances and from all over. That puts some doubt in my mind about the book and my tutor's insistence on it over other books. – Subir Nag Oct 15 '17 at 8:45
  • It's not a BAD piano method. Go with your tutor. – Laurence Payne Oct 15 '17 at 13:04
