The Angry Alligator
By Dennis Alexander
This late elementary solo by Dennis Alexander is perfect for reinfocing bass clef notes and reading. In D minor, both hands play in the bass clef with the left hand frequently crossing over the right hand. Students will have no trouble imagining an angry alligator as they play. They will enjoy the full sounds and gain experience in playing dynamic contrasts. The 3/4 meter will make it easy for them to create the bold sounds of a lumbering, angry alligator.
