Olivia's "The Entertainer"

Last Spring at Co-op, Olivia learned about Scott Joplin, who is probably the most famous ragtime composer in history. His song "The Entertainer" has been one of my favorites for many years. The speed and quirky rhythms are really fascinating to me to listen to and Olivia thought so, too. We asked her piano teacher to help Olivia learn it and went through a couple of versions of varying difficulty until we found one that was a challenge, but still within her range.
