Lang Lang Piano Method" Launch on March 2016
The Lang Lang Piano Method is the next step in the Lang Lang Piano Academy, providing a unique and imaginative way for complete beginners to learn the piano.  Lang Lang’s experience and expertise are distilled throughout the books, encouraging performance skills and self-expression right from the start.
A cartoon Lang Lang brings the books and his own voice to life, taking young pianists step by step through each section. The books develop the right and left hands equally, enabling children to play concert pieces early on in the learning process and establishing good dexterity. Musicianship is developed through theory pages and listening to Lang Lang playing piano classics for children.
“I’ve written The Lang Lang Piano Method to inspire today’s kids with my passion for the piano. Learning an instrument can be a really important part of a child’s development and a great way to improve many things like concentration and focus.  Learning needs to be enjoyable as well and I’m sure kids will make good progress and be inspired to keep going with this series.”  Lang Lang said. 
The Lang Lang Piano Academy is a partnership venture between Faber Music and superstar pianist Lang Lang, launched in September 2014. It encompasses a range of resources – printed books and digital products - for pianists of all levels, from beginners to advanced players, through which Lang Lang shares his passion for the piano.
Generally regarded as the world’s most successful concert pianist, Lang Lang’s extraordinary talent and charisma has inspired millions to take up the piano. In China alone, ‘the Lang Lang effect’ is credited with encouraging over 40 million children to learn the piano.
“The piano is my passion. Through the Lang Lang Piano Academy I hope to inspire today's kids to explore the piano and celebrate the wonderful world of music. There are no short cuts to learning the piano and playing it well, but the journey along the way should be imaginative and rewarding as well as challenging.” Lang Lang, 2014
