What a wonderful gift!!

I just stopped by the website to take a break from taxes and this really brightened my otherwise stressful day.

I was waiting for the opportunity to purchase this when it came out. I'll definitely be looking for the next level guide and saving a spot on next years schedule C for it. \:\)

Simply. Incredible.

This is cutting edge and at the top of the class. Congrats to all involved for another monumental achievement towards better pedagogy for all. Lisa

Sad that I won't get to really look at this until later in week \:\( , but thrilled that it exists! \:D \:\)

Not to get all prophetic, but resources like this site and piano teaching podcasts, etc., will certainly inspire and educate many younger teachers to a level that wasn't even possible before (without pedagogy classes and mentors).

It is also REALLY SMART from a marketing perspective. As more teachers begin using the Faber series effectively and as the authors intended, we will hopefully have more successful piano students progressing through the books. WIN/WIN. \:D Imagine stores selling as many Level 5's as they do Primers!

This is wonderful! I am so excited to have it available online! Will it always be online? Will it be released as a seperate book for teachers to use?

This looks great! Currently I have 4 students in PA Primer and just printed out the guide pages for their new pieces this week. Really looking forward to trying these out!

Now I can't wait for the other levels to be online - any time table for that?

Thanks everyone for your comments!

The Fabers personally sponsored the production of the teacher guide and are committed to having it available to the teacher community.

They are attempting to work with FJH to make an edition available in print with DVDs.

Heh. Now I know why you let me do my coordinated list...glad I could contribute. ;\)

Anyway, this is a wonderful resource, and I'm definitely going to be using it a lot. I'm moving in September and starting my own studio in a small town that only has two (Barrie has 150) teachers at the moment. I've even had feelers about a violin/vocal teacher looking for a studio to work with!

I'm assuming that there will be similar resources for the other levels in the series eventually?
An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he can't get it wrong.
