A Day in the Jungle

A Day in the Jungle composed by Jon George. For Piano. Piano Collection; Piano Supplemental. Elementary. Book. 16 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.0630).

ISBN 0874876303.

These are pieces to stimulate the musical imagination with such titles as "Snake Sneaking" and "Jungle River Flowing." They are also studies for dynamic balance between the hands, soft tone production, "finger-pedal" (sustaining tones with fingers instead of with pedal), and more. Jon George's illustrations add to the attractiveness.

  • April 16, 2015 a wonderful collection!

    i am quite excited to introduce these pieces to my students. Each piece presents an animal or a plant in the jungle. Music reflects the character / movement of each. Unpredictable, clever, inventive! Suitable for late elementary, early intermediate student.

  • May 21, 2011 Love this pieces

    I must say I love these pieces, they are really wonderful. Full of invention and witty. It´s easy, but not for real beginner, I think it´s for children, who play the piano for two years probably...

  • April 23, 2005 Great Harmonic, Fun pieces

    These songs are REALLY great!! They are fun to play but still challenging. I played out of this book last year, and I loved it!! The songs are the coolest. Jon George is a great contemporary composer. --13-yr-old piano student
