Ragtime is a perfect style for exciting duets, and this Scott Joplin-like piece is a fine example in that configuration. In this joyful, bouncy song, both performers are given sections in which to "shine" in an easy-to-read layout, loaded with traditional syncopation and using the full range of the keyboard. This rag will make a crowd-pleasing concert piece as well as a great chance for students to explore the world of ragtime rhythm and styling as they prepare for more difficult solo work.
