Faber Series Piano Adventures Announcement

  "Randall and Nancy Faber have announced the release of “second edition” books for Primer and Level 1 in their Piano Adventures Series.

     The Fabers have made incremental improvements to the 4 main method books for each level (Lesson, Theory, Performance, Technique & Artistry).  All 8 books will be available for shipping to dealers beginning Monday, March 21, 2011 and Frederick Johnson Pianos will be receiving these 2nd edition books in the near future.  All of the prices and item numbers will remain the same. The original editions will still be available for a number of months and if necessary, be reprinted. All of the books (new and original Primer and Level 1) do correlate with each other. Piano teachers may use the 2nd edition alongside the original edition. 

    To facilitate both recognition and ordering each version, Hal Leonard, distributor of Faber Piano Adventures is adding a “60” prefix to the HL item number for the original editions. For example:  60420171 = Level 1 Lesson Book original edition and 420171 = Level 1 Lesson Book, second edition.

    Attached is a 16 page PDF brochure from Randall and Nancy Faber that fully outlines all of the changes to the books.  The Fabers plan to broadcast this news to piano teachers on Friday, March 18, 2011. The publisher's original intent was for a release by the Fabers for MTNA, but due to backlog of orders, a decision has been made to release these 8 Piano Adventures Primer & Level One books ahead of schedule."

Piano Teacher Workshop at Frederick Johnson Pianos with Randall Faber

The husband and wife team Nancy and Randall Faber are internationally known as the authors of the Piano Adventures teaching method and over two hundred publications for the piano. They recently founded the Faber Piano Institute in Ann Arbor, MI.
Randall Faber has toured North America, Asia and Australia. He was master teacher for the World Conference on Piano Pedagogy, National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy, and the National Piano Teachers Institute. He gave recitals in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, St. Louis, Ann Arbor, Dallas and Austin, with more appearances at the Portland International Music Festival, the Gilmore Festival, the Wasserman Festival, and the Korea Piano Adventures Convention in Seoul. Dr. Faber presented his academic research at the 9th International Conference on Motivation in Lisbon, Portugal and is a frequent keynote speaker and convention artist.
The Fabers advocate piano study, not only for personal expression and performance success, but also as a vehicle for the student's creative and cognitive development. Their philosophy is reflected in their writing, their public appearances and in their own teaching.
