    My 4th grade student played this at the end of our recital and left everyone on a high note! As a matter of fact, 2 of my other students were asking to play the piece after the recital!

    African Safari is a HUGE hit!

    A fun piece to play with tons of artistic expression and storytelling opportunities for a beginning student. Great for rote teaching and definitely recital worthy!

    I purchased the African Adventures series specifically with a 14 year old student in mind. She has dyspraxia and has had numerous teachers give up on her over the last few years as she couldn’t play two hands together or read music fluently.
    This morning, we experimented together and we tried learning African Safari by rote. This is new to me so I had no idea if it would work for a dyspraxic teenager.
    I’m overjoyed to say that in 30 minutes she was playing the first half, both hands, from memory! Remarkable!
    A few tears of joy have been shed by student, parent and teacher this morning!
    Thank you Wendy for producing a series of pieces that may just change the whole learning experience for this young girl. I said I wouldn’t give up until I found a way to help her learn piano and you’ve made it possible. We are all indebted to you for this moment of excitement and achievement!

    African Safari wins again! I have two more new teen students who have just had 3 lessons and wanted something that sounded impressive to play even though they can’t read or play much yet. I gave them a choice of which one of your songs they would like and both chose African Safari. African Safari is the all time favorite for most of my students. Almost every kids asks if you would write pieces more like that. They love the catchy rhythm and getting to use the entire piano.

    I have lost count of the number of students I have given this piece to – they all LOVE it!! It saved one student I thought I would lose, as she was really struggling with note reading and her best friend (whom I also teach) was breezing along, which made it all the more difficult. I gave her African Safari – this was the turning point for her, as she was able to learn this piece by rote very quickly and felt a huge sense of accomplishment. She now has a renewed determination to succeed thanks to this wonderful piece and is also patiently persisting with reading, knowing that there are more of Wendy’s fabulous pieces waiting for her to learn quickly and easily!
