I first began playing the piano when I was 17. In fact, The Entertainer was the 2nd song I ever memorized and I learned by watching my mom play it. I was fascinated by the syncopation and unique melodies between the right hand and left hand. I then learned Maple Leaf Rag, then Sunflower Slow Drag and Pine Apple Rag. My thirst for learning and playing ragtime music never waned - I now play nearly 25 different ragtime pieces, most of which are listed below.
I also broadcast on Periscope
and archived performances of my piano sessions can be found on
Katch.me. --UPDATE: Unfortunately, Katch.me is no longer in service. You can find archived broadcasts on my YouTube channel. ”
