The Joplin Jive

ateachingheart

Oh my, I forgot how much fun Scott Joplin’s music is to listen to!

We played some of his compositions via YouTube today and both of the boys were instantly wiggling around the kitchen playing the air piano (not nearly as glamorous as the air guitar, but don’t tell them that!)

Hunter, who plays the piano, was in awe that someone could play so fast. I told him I used to play that song when I was much younger…. just not as well at the original composer :)

I am looking forward to exploring Ragtime in the next week to come.

What music is playing at your house?

  1. My daughter asks me at least once a week, “WHEN are we going to learn about Scott Joplin? He is my favorite!” Ragtime is such happy music – I love it!

    We learned about another American composer this week – Stephen Foster. His tunes are pretty catchy too.
