Happy Birthday, Scott Joplin!

06-258076Happy birthday to the “King of Ragtime Writers!” Thus was Scott Joplin christened by John Stark, the publisher who dedicated his working life to promoting ragtime music. Joplin’s the “Maple Leaf Rag” was the first ragtime sheet music to sell over a million copies. Joplin also wrote waltzes, marches, intermezzi, tangos, songs, and a delightful opera called “Treemonisha.” Dover publishes a volume called “Complete Piano Rags” by Scott Joplin. It includes a biography of Scott Joplin and six exercises from Scott Joplin’s “School of Ragtime.” If you love Joplin’s rags, this is the book for you! All the pieces are original, not simplified.
