Hi all, for anyone asking about European shipping - I live in the UK and I bought the books by mail order directly from the publishers Institut Sainte Rafqa de Musique. You can contact them at secretariatisrm@gmail.com

The price of the two volumes together was $74, plus shipping cost to UK of $47 (10 to 15 working days in Liban Post service), payable by Western Union which has a very straightforward online interface.

Hello el-esseily!

Thanks for your information!

Is there an existing website? I did not find anything using the name of the institute you gave. I'd like very much having a look into the books before buying. Or can you tell us something about the contents? What is the concept Charbel uses? What are his didactics? Or, maybe, could you post a preview of the indexes? What are your impressions about the books?

A lot of questions for sure, but I hope you can help!




Greetings from Germany!

Hello newlife - the video review by Fadhel that Suz_i_dil kindly posted in thread is pretty thorough and more than makes up for the lack of other info online! Take a look at the video in HD mode, it will show you all the detail and you'll get a good idea of the contents (including indexes), but let me know if you have questions on any particular aspect.

I've been learning oud for about 3 years with various teachers, and I wish I'd had these books from day 1! They are really methodical and professional. The progressions are very logical and incremental, no gaps or sudden jumps, so I am definitely looking forward to using them for daily self study. Highly recommended!!

Hello el-esseily!

Ok, I contacted the given address for further information. Apart from that I took a closer look at the youtube link. I did not understand a single word, but the contents seem to be very good. Due to the fact that I have no teacher at all this is the only book making sense for daily practise. Thanks again!

Western Union Germany is kind of confusing and inscrutable, I'm not going to make a payment there. Western Union tells me my money will be transferred to an austrian bank first, in addition they say they do not know if my bank will charge me for the transaction. Seems too risky for me, maybe in the end I will end up at 200 Euros as before.

Lebanon. :( No oud method for me I fear. I do not know why they make buying so complicated there. I hope they will sell in european shops before long. Somehow I feel sorry for Charbel. I mean he has done great work, but nobody outside his country can buy his books without paying postage that equals the price of his books!?

I did a search on the web and found a shop at hawamusic.net in Lebanon.

Hawamusic

I ordered both books for 37$ each, 74$ for both. Ok. Only available with credit card which I haven't. Shipping cost would be 73$! Finally I asked data for a bank transfer and got them. My bank wants additional 50 Euros (I'm from Germany) for the money transfer. That's about 200$. I gave up and cancelled my order. The price for the books is fine, but the additional charges are way too much for me. I hope the books will find their way to Europe and the rest of the world. Having them shipped from Lebanon is no fun. Not for me. Anybody willing to pay so much?

I ordered the books from Hawamusic.net
They have reduced the shipping cost to Europe after asking them and the shipping was $30 for the 2 books at the time.
I recommend Hawamusic.net
