Nancy and Randall Faber have combined their backgrounds as composer and performer to become leading supporters of piano teachers and students. The husband and wife team has authored over 200 publications, including the bestselling Piano Adventures® method and the PreTime® to BigTime® Piano Supplementary Library. 

Nancy Faber was named “Distinguished Composer of the Year” by the Music Teachers National Association for her award-winning composition Tennessee Suite for Piano and String Quartet. Her flute quartet Voices from Between Worlds was the winning composition for the National Flute Association’s Professional Chamber Music Competition. Her most recent commission was Curiouser and Curiouser for Clarinet, Saxophone, and Piano, commissioned by MTNA for the 2011 National Convention in celebration of its Year of Collaborative Music. Nancy’s music has been heard on network television and public radio. Teachers of composition include Joan Tower, William Albright, and British composer Nicholas Maw; piano studies were at the Eastman School and Michigan State University. 

Randall Faber performs extensively as a classical pianist and lectures on musical artistry and talent development around the world. His performances have aired on television and public radio. He was a master teacher for the World Piano Pedagogy Conference, the Music Teachers National Association Conference, and the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy, and has presented as guest artist at universities throughout North America and Asia. Randall holds three degrees from the University of Michigan and a Ph.D. in education and human development from Vanderbilt University. 

The Fabers advocate piano study not only for personal expression and performance success, but also as a vehicle for the student's creative and cognitive development. Their philosophy is reflected in their writing, their public appearances, and in their own teaching.
