Chubby Hippo & Friends: 10 Really Easy Piano Pieces with Really Silly Lyrics
My children thought I should write a book for younger piano students with cheerful, silly lyrics. A number of the pieces are jazzy in character, so having lyrics actually helps with getting the rhythm right! ("Cowboy Bunny struts into the saloon" or " The grumpy Gorilla wanted chocolate ice-cream. But they only had vanilla so he started to scream"...) Two pieces have been chosen by the RIA for their Grade 1 & Grade 2 exams.
- Song of the Happy Guinea Pig
- Cute Little Kitten (Kitten in Boots)
- Chubby Hippo Blues
- Hug a Pug
- Cowboy Bunny
- The 3 Little Pigs (Pig Jig)
- My Little Earworm
- Grumpy Gorilla
- Fuzzy Wuzzy Jazzy
- The Friendly Vegetarian Shark
