This early-elementary solo contains long, song-like legato phrases with steps and skips. The melody is primarily divided between the hands. A few harmonic intervals and a smattering of accidentals are also included. Clever lyrics help students imagine the thrills of an exciting jungle safari. Contrasting dynamics add interest, and an optional duet accompaniment provides a solid bass harmony to support the student part. A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.
