Seven imaginitive and fun zoo-themed pieces for the piano by Richard Lane, suitable for beginner and intermediate pianists:
Some of the octave stretches may present problems for smaller hands, and there are a few rhythmic challenges. But the pieces are charming, fun to play (and listen to!) and well reward the time spent learning them.
The third piece from Talent Night at the Zoo, The Penguin, has been set for the ABRSM Grade 4 Piano Syllabus 2017-2018.
12 pages. Composed 1961, Published 2013
