Jennifer Linn, the manager of the Hal Leonard educational piano department, has written an informative letter to interested teachers concerning the newly acquired distribution rights of the Faber materials. In this letter, she explains a bit about how the Hal Leonard Student Piano Method will continue to function, the Hal Leonard distributorship will work, and how new release clubs will be structured. Her original letter was written to the HL Yahoo group, which I would encourage any teacher to join!
The Hal Leonard Student Piano Library is a vital and important piano course for Hal Leonard, and we look forward to continuing to offer many new and exciting materials in the future. I am personally very excited about a number of new publications that are “in the pipeline” and hope that you have enjoyed the new “More Christmas Piano Solos” that were just released this fall in 6 levels (Pre-staff through Level 5). We (HLSPL) are also gearing up for a robust workshop season this summer with innovative ideas from our family of talented composers and authors.
Just as Hal Leonard is the distributor for great companies such as Willis, G. Schirmer, Boosey & Hawkes, Henle, Schott, ,Novus Via (American Popular Piano), Lee Evans, Robert Pace etc.,Faber Piano Adventures is yet another important member of this Hal Leonard family of companies that we distribute. The marketing efforts for these companies are currently separate for the most part (as in our new release clubs etc.), and the Fabers will be as well.
It is an exciting time for educational piano and we at Hal Leonard are looking forward to this new frontier.
