How to buy the Mark O'Connor book III from outside the USA
I'm from Spain and I'm very interested in O'Connor method but, I seems that the official shop, Sharmusic, doesn't ship nowhere but USA and Canada. I finded a store with the other books (elderly) but it hasn't the third volumen, and I haven't found it either in Amazon Spain. Does know anybody where to buy this volumen?
It is quite possible that, in order to get his method books promoted, O'Connor may have entered into an exclusive arrangement with SHAR. Your options may be limited to finding a used copy somewhere or ... piracy. Maybe the people who answer the phone at www.oconnormethod.com can help you avoid those unsavory eventualities.
Yes, I already wrote to Alexandra at that address but I didn't receive any reply. I would rather not have to call on the phone because my English is quite poor, and second hand I have not found anything.
grothmusic.com offers it and at least they mention international shipping. Perhaps it’s an option.
One warning about the O'Connor books is that they are bound into a very hard glossy cover -- very nice and expensive but unfortunately it will not lie flat on your stand. I took all mine to a copy center and had the bindings cut off and replaced with coils.
Eva, thanks, they got it! unfortunatly there's a problem with postal code, the checkout doesn't recognize the spanish number, I'll try to ask them a solution.
You will most likely have to pay duty fees when you receive the package sent from the US, which can be over 20 euros.
Matteo, I usually buy score books at sheetmusicplus and other shops, and I've never had to pay fees. I think the shipments retained at customs are the packages, those that go in envelopes dont usually have problems.
