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
