Maple Leaf Rag

Listen to a sample

What to expect

This is the original version and not an arrangement. Next to “The Entertainer,” this song is one of the most recognizable ragtime pieces by Scott Joplin. This “by ear” lesson starts with a full demonstration of the piece and then works you through the entire song note-by-note with a full description of fingering, pedaling, and technique. This song is rated as an early advanced level piece.
