Grade 3

Joplin (arr. Önaç) - The Entertainer

Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer is surely among the most well-known rags of all time. This clever arrangement by David Önaç makes the piece accessible to the elementary player. Problems feeling the syncopations in the right hand can be solved by clapping the rhythm of the melodic line while counting the four beats of the bar out aloud. A steady left hand is essential to bring out the character.
