‘Joey the Wallabee Kangaroo’ is an elementary piano solo with lyrics in the ‘Noah’s Ark Series’ of piano solos by Lynne Cox. This series focuses on global music emphasizing different styles in music. The song style is a waltz, which depicts European influence in Australia. ‘Joey’ is in the key of F and form is: intro ABA coda. The B section is in Dm (relative minor). The musical plan is for the mother to represent the first beat of each measure (strong beat) as she hops, and the arc of her jump represents the entire measure. Very playful. Damper pedal is used. LH plays typical waltz accompaniment while lyrics in the RH single-note melody tell of a shy baby kangaroo that does NOT want to leave the safety of Mom’s pouch! The piece has a surprise coda. The piece uses accelerando and ritardando and also introduces augmented chords
