My piano training is in Classical Music and I love sharing that grand tradition with my students. This page is devoted to arrangements of the works of Scott Joplin
The Entertainer is one of Scott Joplin's most popular piano rags. This simple arrangement in the mid to late elementary level. It is 2 pages long and presents the "main theme" of the rag. The arrangement incorporates mainly two part writing throughout with parallel sixths and a single note bass line. There are also a few simple intervals that "beefs up" the sound in a key moments in the arrangement.
This arrangement therefore has a lot of teaching value making students aware of what they to expect as they move into the intermediate levels of performance. The Entertainer is a great piece for any beginning students repertoire!
