Wright Pianoforte Tutor -
Around a year and half back, after I started my tentative steps towards learning piano at the ripe age of 50, My then tutor in Mumbai suggested this book to me. While it was available in a city music store I was surprised to see very little reference of this book on the internet. Most recordings of from the book on the YouTube, although not many, came from India only. The book however is printed in England.
I had on my own purchase Alfred's adult all in one level 1.
Side by side, I preferred the latter much more but kept on persevering on the first book as well. However when there was the longish break in my lessons on account of move across the country, I totally weaned off the first book.
I took another break, (not from playing) from my present tutor in this month, and on a whim, reopened the book - and faced these two pieces. And I am totally at a loss!!
My questions are:
Doesn't the first piece sound very un-melodic? In fact, I don't know what that 8th bar is doing?
What are these pieces teaching? Especially the LH movements in the second piece?
And, (I know that this is subjective), aren't these pieces a tad too difficult (technically) as early pieces in a beginner book?!
