And the Faber’s have delivered a new surprise in their Piano Adventures piano method series! In the Primer level and Level 1 books, they have come out with second editions. Look for a new sight reading book, more activities in the theory book and a teacher edition! The Fabers created these new editions to make the transition from My First Piano Adventures more seamless between to the two sections of the series and some of their students were a little sad that their favorite characters from My First Piano Adventure didn’t travel with them into the Piano Adventures books. And the Fabers tested these books extensively in their own studios, so they know their changes positively affect piano students.
What are the changes? As mentioned before, there are entirely new books: a new sight reading book in the primer level and a teacher edition. And inside the lesson, performance, and technique and artistry books, new pieces and instruction have been added. The one book with the greatest change is the theory book, and it has many more activities to reinforce music knowledge with students. Just to let you know, the first edition will also still be available, and you can tell the difference between the two editions by these two thing: “2nd Edition” on the front and the wheel of correlating materials on the back of each book. Another the great thing about the new books is that all the units line up in the same order as the old edition. Check out how the two editions correlate by clicking here. And will there be more editions added? As of this time, there are no other editions planning to come out.
With all these changes and editions, did the price increase? The price did not change! Talk about getting more bang for your buck!
To learn a little more in-depth about the changes, we have an article for you to check out from the Fabers: Announcing…Piano Adventures 2nd edition. And each of our store locations has the new editions, so you can really check them out in detail!
The Fabers really would like to have your feedback on the books. So, use them with you students and let them know what you think by going to Feedback on their site! And if you would rather pass the message through us, we’d be more than willing to pass along your opinion and input. Just let us know!
Happy Piano Adventures!
