Holiday Greetings 2020

Dear Friends and Colleagues around the world,

Happy Holidays to you and your families! There is great hope as we enter 2021. We wish you safe, healthy, happy holidays now, and with the prospect of happy times ahead.

Let us play music for a seasonable time! Whatever it may be—a carol, a sonata, or a favorite popular song. If you would like to play a rousing excerpt of “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen” from this video, you can access the score here.

May God’s blessings be with you now and in the promise of 2021.

Most sincerely,
Nancy and Randall Faber

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE EVERYTHING about your piano courses/supplemental books!! I first started using your supplemental books because of the wide selection of music and how well the were arranged. Several tears ago I was tired of the other 2 piano series/publishers that I had been using and started using your Lesson/Technique/Performance/Theory books and became equally enamored. I have never taught a technic book where the songs are just as engaging as the “real” songs in the Lesson/Performance books….students practice the technic w/o being bored with the “exercise”!!

    All of your fingerings, editorial comments, and just the general progressive flow of introducing new concepts is so natural and easy to do. The graphic layout of the pages is engaging! The piece choices is refreshing, between modern and “older classics”!! The “Strawberry Malt” song has become a FAV of ALL of my students who play it and I never get tired of hearing it…great arrangement!

    So, from a very “seasoned” teacher, I THANK YOU and your staff for creating and publishing your music! I do not think I have ever seen that Nancy and Randall have led but I would LOVE to meed them in person and hear them speak as to their philosophy and what directed them towards this fantastic company!! I and ALLL of my students THANK YOU!!! 🙂

    Dear Nancy and Randall,
    Thank you for the delightful holiday video and your warm greetings. I have learned so much from your videos and my teaching has definitely improved thanks to you! God bless both of you with all good things and I look forward to learning and teaching more wonderful things from you in 2021.

  12. Carolyn Deibel December 17, 2020 at 11:38 am #

    Thank you very much for this cheery greeting. It was nice how you showed pictures of all different types of pianists instead of just displaying a video of one person performing. It reminds us that, as a variety of musicians, we’re all in this together.

    Thanks for all you contribute to the music community. I’ve been using your books for years! And thank you for the Christmas music!

    Thank you so much for your ever-expanding commitment to support teachers and enhance student learning. I am constantly impressed by the sheer number of free resources you provide, but this year you really went above and beyond with the launch of Beethoven: Independent Man. What an amazing website. The stories were simple enough for children, but it was the Search & Discover section which blew me away. I went down so many rabbit holes as I clicked link after link. I have recommended the site to all my student families as well as sharing it on my studio Facebook page. Happy holidays to the entire team at the Faber Institute and may 2021 bring all of us Comfort and Joy.

    Merry Christmas! Thank you for taking the time to provide such good help and encouragement to piano teachers this year and previous years. Your books provide so much.

    I was so thankful to have a full library so that I could begin Zoom lessons in March with hardly missing a beat.

    I even had some new students begin this fall.
    One of the new parents said that she was happy that her child was learning how to learn and how to practice, not just memorize and play by rote.

    She had tried something else previously and was not happy.

    So I have my college piano pedagogy professor to thank, and Piano Adventures for their determination to put out quality work.

    Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

    Thank you so much for your good wishes and for sharing your gifts of music with so many people around the world. Music is one of the many blessings we enjoy through which we can all keep connected especially in times like we are facing in 2020.
    May you have much peace, joy and love during this Christmas season and always.

    Thanks to you at Piano Adventures I was able to teach my music students online by accessing their books if I didn’t have my own copy of it so that was very beneficial to me as a teacher. Also, back in the early days of the Covid Pandemic lockdown I was able to access the webinars which enabled me to be able to teach music lessons online as well. Happy Holidays and here’s hoping 2021 will be a much better year for everyone!
