The Happy Hippo and Friends
This book contains 24 animal themed pieces for early grade oboists. All the pieces were written as solos and then each piece had an oboe accompaniment part written for it. This means that each piece can be performed as a solo or as a duet with teacher or a more advanced student. When a student reaches a certain level they can then come back to this book and learn the accompaniment or use them as good sight-reading pieces.
The pieces include
The Happy Hippo, The Waltzing Warthog, The Sad, Slow Sloth, The Animated Albatross, The Laughing Llama, The Knock-kneed Kangaroo, The Rambunctious Raccoon, The Elegant Elephant and The Zany Zebra amongst others.
