    I started using My First Piano Adventures a couple of years ago and am having a lot of fun with it. The first students are now seven, and the fastest ones are ready for simple classical pieces, and all of them are still taking lessons!

    Elizabeth,
    I enjoyed your presentation today. I, too, live in Texas and was surprised by the snow and ice this morning! Of course, it was the one “snow day” here in Houston that school was not cancelled!!
    I have used the First Piano Adventures curriculum with group classes and private lessons and like you, I found the activities to be very helpful with young students as well as older ones who need to improve their technique. I have use the “Cat Back” concept with all my students to reinforce proper wrist “float off.”
    Thank you again for your presentation.

    Thanks for your presentation! I used the My First Piano Adventures book with one student and it has turned out well. So far. 🙂 It makes me reevaluate my policy on not taking younger children on as students. (I spent many years teaching preschool and it is not my forte.)

    I’m looking forward to seeing more from your blog and webpage. Thanks!

    Thank you for your wonderful webinar on teaching young beginners! Your coaching us on how to teach from the popular Fabor Piano Adventure book for absolute beginners was insightful and the videos are most helpful, I will be checking more of them out on the Faber website.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Thank you very much for your presentation today! I use the Primier and Level Faber books for my students but I did not know about the younger version. I am so glad you shared this with us today. It is something I will be bringing into my studio.

    Thanks
    Victoria

    Elizabeth:
    I thought your presentation today was excellent. Well organized, full of good stuff. You did a nice job. Were I a parent of small kids, I’d be standing on your porch every morning begging you to teach them! I appreciated the insight to why the early piano adventures are so focused on the characters. I really like the materials and progression and have dipped into them for ideas with my beginners (ages 5 and 6 depending on development), but felt resistant about spending so much time on the characters. The “need for story” is something that will really stick with me. Thank you so much for taking the time to share.

    Thank you for your presentation at the MusicEdConnect online conference! What a great idea to put this conference together – I hope it will become a regular event. I was able to view the second half of your session LIVE and look forward to going back to view the recording. I so enjoy teaching young beginners! Thank you again!!
