Leading sheet music publisher and distributor Hal Leonard Europe has announced that with immediate effect it will distribute F2M Editions exclusively worldwide, with the exception of France in which Hal Leonard Europe will distribute non-exclusively.
F2M Editions was founded in 2011 by French piano teacher and author Christophe Astié, who aspired to create method books and repertoire pieces that would allow all musicians to enjoy the pleasure of making and creating music. Starting from the principle that to experience joy whilst playing is the best of motivations, F2M created methods for Piano, Guitar, Violin, Accordion, Vocal and Music Theory.
Suitable for every age group and level of difficulty, F2M publications offer inspiration for passionate learners who dream of playing music, as well as those who would like to start learning music again. Best sellers include the ever popular J’apprends le Piano, as well as Le Piano pour les 5/8 ans, J’apprends la Guitare, F.M. Jazz, Le Violon à partir de 6 ans, and many more.
The addition F2M Editions to its distribution ensures Hal Leonard Europe continues to grow its catalogue of French language music education resources and repertoire whilst maintaining a leading position in the French market.
“I believe that music is a game and that it should be approached easily, with methods that offer quality, progressive training, clear explanations and well-known and varied repertoire. Tout simplement… !”Christophe Astié, Founder of F2M
“We are delighted to partner with Christophe Astié and F2M Editions, adding further depth to our catalogue of educational music. Having been a wholesaler and retailer of F2M publications in France for many years, it was a logical choice for us to step up our distribution outside France. We look forward to ensuring customers all over the world have easy access to the F2M catalogue through our multiple sales channels.”Frédéric Spannagel, Senior Key Account Manager – Hal Leonard Europe
All products are now in stock and ready to be shipped. Resellers interested in stocking F2M Editions should contact their local Hal Leonard Europe sales representative.
