13 - Maple Leaf Rag Preview track: Stream MP3 Download MP3 Real WMA
When I was eight years old, I heard my father playing ragtime on the piano. I hadn't played the piano
before, but I loved the sound of that style of music, so I attempted to play one of the rags. After six months, I could more or less
get the notes. I have played many different styles of music in the years since, but ragtime remains one of the most satisfying. This
particular piece is one of Scott Joplin's best known compositions.
