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. Their philosophy is reflected in their writing, their public appearances, and in their own tea --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is the only book in the Piano Adventures range in which I am disappointed. There are far too many words and difficult to follow opening pages to suit the young beginner. The following Pre-time books are wonderful, as are the subsequent books, suiting,motivating and moving on all ages & abilities.

Kids love this book and so do I. It is very gently paced, ideal for the young beginner. The songs are tuneful, there are some fun teacher accompaniments (quite jazzy at times) and, best of all, there is a website which provides extra creative suggestions, downloadable duets, teaching tips and lesson videos for all the pieces. Fingering is kept to a minimum to encourage proper reading rather than just following the finger numbers, and finger positions are varied so the child does not get into the habit of thinking the thumb always plays middle C. It is a great introduction to music-making.I have two pupils who were struggling with another book - one of whom barely practised and I thought would quit. Switching to this book has been great for both of them - the one who never practised really enjoys practising these pieces and the other is making great progress. If you've not tried this yet, you really should.
