  • February 01, 2016 Now this is a really good Rag Time book!!!

    And here I thought I was a beginner on piano. I purchased this book and found that I could play The NonPareil with no problem. Excellent piano arrangements throughout! Thank you Mr Rosen for taking the time to prepare this beautiful booklet.

    Difficulty Level:
  • July 24, 2007 Good source for intermediate rags.

    This book contains a good selection of Joplin rags for the intermediate level player. My boys are competing in a Ragtime Piano Competition, and I had a hard time finding the rags they liked in an intermediate arrangement. My boys are 10 and 12 years old, and they have been...

    taking lessons for 4 and 6 years (respectively). The arrangements are slightly challenging for them, but not over-whelming.
