Scott Joplin: A Guide for K-12 Music Educators. Presenter: Kendra Kay Friar
Did you know that Scott Joplin, "King of Ragtime Composers," began his career as a quartet singer and entrepreneur? Did you know that Joplin was a lifelong learner, a respected music editor, and a community leader? This interactive session empowers participants to introduce the real Scott Joplin to their students through improvisation, dance, and listening activities. Study the score of a Joplin piano rag, which was intended to be played as written. Consider historic photos of ragtime faces and places. Learn the "One-Step," the "Stop-Time," and other celebrated dance steps of the ragtime era. If Scott Joplin could speak to students today, what would he want them to know about his ragtime life? Participants will receive the resources needed to bring Scott Joplin’s story and his revolutionary ragtime ideas to life for students of every age and stage.
