Faber Music sales director Hilary Griffin said: “The Kjos catalogue – and the Bastien Piano Method in particular – has been long-established in the UK market and we’re thrilled to have entered into a new, exclusive UK & Ireland distribution agreement for the whole range of Kjos publications. We look forward to working closely both with our customers and with the Kjos team in the US, to extend the range and reach of the catalogue and, in turn, to grow the business here in the UK.”
"We're delighted to have signed this agreement with Faber Music Distribution,” said Mark Kjos, president of the company. “The UK is an important territory for us as we continue to achieve our aim of helping students and teachers around the world achieve excellence in music. We look forward to working with the Faber Music team to bring our publications to the market."
