Ragtime is an American musical genre, enjoying its peak popularity around the years . Ragtime is a dance form written in 2/4 or 4/4 time, and utilizing a walking bass , that is, the bass note played legato on the 1-3 beats with a staccato chord played on the 2-4 beats. Much ragtime is written in Sonata form , with four distinct themes and a modified first theme appearing in the work. Ragtime music is syncopated , with the melodic notes landing largely on the off-beats. The etymology of the word ragtime is not known with certainty. One theory is that the "ragged time" associated with the walking bass set against the melodic line gives the genre its name. Contents showTocToggle("show","hide") 1 Historical context

Historical context
Ragtime originated in African-American musical communities, in the late 19th century . By the start of the 20th century it became widely popular throughout North America and was listened and danced to, performed, and written by people of many different subcultures. A distinctly American musical style, ragtime may be considered a synthesis of African-American syncopation and European classical music, though this description is oversimplified.

As an experiment, I am going to provide some FREE downloadable, GIF format, scanned images of sheet music for some ragtime pieces. The available scores will be EXCLUSIVELY LIMITED TO PUBLIC DOMAIN COMPOSITIONS! Please do NOT ask me to include copies of any compositions published more recently than 1922.
These GIF files can be printed out on your own printer, from your own computer, once you download and unzip the graphic archive file. The quality of these scanned images produces a very good result when printed using a reasonably good graphic program and printer, with 100dpi resolution or better.
One program which works very well for printing the sheet music scans in Windows is a freeware graphics program called IrfanView.
However, it is important that you do not use settings in your graphic program which may reduce the image resolution prior to printing the score. For example, some graphic programs have a setting which reduces the image to fit it entirely within the display screen on your CRT. If this setting is enabled, it generally will reduce the quality of the image, and the printed result will be very poor. Let the image on the computer screen spill outside of the viewable area, and fit the image to a single page when printing from the program.

It is one of the most famous rags. Ragtime (alternately spelled rag-time is an original musical genre which enjoyed its peak popularity between 1897 and 1918. Its main characteristic trait is its syncopated, or "ragged," rhythm. It began as dance music in the red-light districts of American cities such as St. Louis and New Orleans years before being published as popular sheet music for piano. It was a modification of the march made popular by John Philip Sousa , with additional polyrhythms coming from African music. The ragtime composer Scott Joplin became famous through the publication in 1899 of the " Maple Leaf Rag " and a string of ragtime hits that followed, although he was later forgotten by all but a small, dedicated community of ragtime aficionados until the major ragtime revival in the early 1970s.

How Jazz Got Started
Monday, July 14th, 2008 Though many associate the birth of jazz music with the city of New Orleans, its origin may be a bit more ambiguous. Like many other musical forms, jazz evolved over a period of years. Many agreed, however, that jazz music as we know it today was born in the southern United States. It is also accepted that it developed from a variety of different influences, culminating in a style that became its own genre. to the United States in the 1800s. In fact, African music influenced many styles of music, including rock and roll. The form that evolved into jazz consisted specifically of call-and- response singing, syncopation and improvisation. Ragtime, which may be considered a precursor to modern jazz, drew upon many of these elements. Ragtime music originated after the emancipation of African slaves. The newfound freedom of slaves was bittersweet. Though freedom was deserved and appreciated, there were few job opportunities for freed slaves. Many had no means of self- support, and some simply stayed on with their former owners.

Sheet Music Sales Recent Ragtime Party A Brief History of Nashville Ragtime

Many people today don’t realize that Nashville, Tennessee is a major source in the development of the happy, frolicking, syncopated rhythms of the ragtime tunes. As ragtime music was being developed by composer Scott Joplin in the St. Louis area, Charles Hunter, (1876-1906) a Columbia, Tennessee native and graduate of the Tennessee School for the Blind was composing major folk rags in Nashville. His rags have today become one of the most important works by a Southern Folk Ragtime composer. H. A. French published the first known Nashville Rag in 1898 by Thomas Broady. Today Broady is considered by many scholars to be the other ragtime great. Both Hunter and Broady’s rags were published by H.A. French. During this period Nashville ragtime was beginning to become more popular through other Nashville publishing companies known as Fite Music Publishers, O.K.Houk, and Lew Roberts Publishing. As ragtime was developing in Nashville, a lesser known composer, W.H. Petway was publishing his own music. Petway was pictured on all the covers of his music with a missing leg. He played in homes of the most affluent in Nashville and sold his music at parties and on the downtown streets. In 2004 Jon Weaver III recorded on the Stargold Music Label three of W.H. Petways lesser known rags. This is a premier recording of the Petway rags. The rags can be heard on the CD, JON Weaver lll plays THOSE LONG GONE DOG GONE NASHVILLE RAGS.
