There seems no precise time indicating the when he was born but the available sources shows that he was born at around June 1867 to mid in January 1868 (Bat 1996). This information from census was obtained and recorded at around July of 1867 in Texas indicating that the boy was two years old then. Joplin later moved with together with his family to a newly established town called Texarkana which was situated at the border of Texas-Arkansas. It is here where he got access to piano when he started learning music with it. Joplin attended Lincoln High School in the late 1880s the same time he is said to have started his musical career. Scott Joplin started showing his musical career in collection of his piano works which has made it possible to access them easily. Most pianists nowadays also use the lyrics of maple leaf rag as their favorite ragtime (Maurice H. 2007). The rag has been fused in other people’s works like films inform of sound tracks in cartoons video games and commercials.

Order Description:

Choose an American composer (someone born and/or raised in the United States) from any genre who was born prior to 1920. Write a short (3-4 page, double-spaced) biography of him or her. Then, listen to and review one piece by this composer (2-3 pages or more, double-spaced). This review is the most important part of the assignment, so please spend plenty of time developing your own ideas about the music - do not simply regurgitate ideas of other authors in this section. You can choose any American composer, from classical composers like Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Charles Ives, Amy Beach, Elliott Carter, and John Cage to popular music composers like Scott Joplin, Duke Ellington, and Cole Porter. Please be sure that the composer is American – your paper should not begin with "Beethoven was born in Bonn, Germany..." The composer must also have been born prior to 1920. You must use at least four sources for the biographical section of the paper. Drawing ideas from only one or two authors is not thorough research. You must cite your sources and use at least one printed (non-internet) source besides our textbook. Please use MLA citation format, with parenthetical citations in the text and a complete Works Cited list at the end. Internet sources must be properly cited, and you cannot use Wikipedia as a source (it is not a reviewed source, so it is considered unacceptable for serious academic work). If you have any questions please ask. Please do your best to be creative and find someone whose music you are truly drawn to. Remember that your ability to review the music is more important than the biography section, so think deeply and expand your ideas. The paper is due December 3rd
