About the Author

The husband and wife team Nancy and Randall Faber are internationally known as 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, where they live with their daughter Vivian. Nancy Faber, who was named "Distinguished Composer of the Year" by the Music Teachers National Association, enjoys a busy schedule of commissions for the concert stage in addition to her educational composing. Recent commissions include "The Snow Queen" for narrator and orchestra, "The Picture My Imagination Has Painted" for Flute Quartet and Piano, and "Trio for Flute, Saxophone and Piano". Her pieces have been heard on U.S. public radio and network television. She studied composition with Joan Tower, William Albright, and British composer Nicholas Maw; piano studies were at the Eastman School and Michigan State University. Randall Faber has toured Korea, Taiwan, Canada and the United Kingdom. He was master teacher for both the World Conference on Piano Pedagogy and the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy. He gave recitals in St. Louis, Ann Arbor, as Convention Artist for the North Dakota Music Teachers, and performed as Visiting Artist at the University of Michigan, University of Southern Mississippi, Saginaw State University, and numerous universities throughout South Korea. He was featured clinician for the Nebraska Music Teachers, the Florida Music Teachers and the Pennsylvania Music Teachers Convention, and recently presented his research at the 9th International Conference on Motivation in Lisbon, Portugal. Dr. Faber holds three degrees from the University of Michigan and a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University. 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.

I have found this series to help motivate students to play more! The songs are interesting and fun to play. The series does a good job of teaching the basics of theory and technique. While I do not use this series for all my students, the ones who are using it are doing well!

I am a big fan of this series of books. My eldest son's piano teacher started him on these and I find that each song develops something slightly different from the last and the songs themselves are usually interesting enough musically to keep the attention.

This series is both enjoyable and effective.

Great piano series. We homeschool our three children and have used this series for four years. It is easy to follow and fun. What more could a parent and teacher ask for?

This Performance book is excellent on getting absolute piano beginners started on performance directed songs. Each song is a lot of fun to play and will keep children entertained as they practice.

I love this series as a piano teacher. I have my students buy the Performace, Theory, Technique and Artistry, and Lesson books. They are really well rounded students.

This is my favourite book in this level of Faber & Faber due to the pieces, the musicality, etc. It can be used with other methods as well. I don't use the primer book as I don't like it's methodology.

I used the book before this in the series and it was fine. There are just some subtle differences in the way you might teach. And sometimes, as I recall, they may not indicate all the pauses in the notation. So I just turned that into an exercise and had them complete the page by "drawing in" the rests where they needed to be.
