    While you work, listen to the rags of Scott Joplin the “King of Ragtime.” He was an African American composer born in Texas in the 1860s, lived in Sedalia, Missouri among other places, and died in New York in 1917. His father was a slave

    Ragtime: Ragtime developed in African American communities throughout the southern parts of the Midwest, particularly Missouri. Bands would combine the structure of marches with black songs and dances such as the cakewalk. The music, which predated the explosion of sound recordings, became widespread through the sale of published sheet music and piano rolls. In this way it contrasts sharply from early jazz, which was spread by recordings and live performances.
