Maple Leaf Rag

Well, that came quick didn’t it?  Thanksgiving is already here (what happened to the rest of the year??) and we’re excited to wish our family of patients a Happy Turkey Day!

Dr. Weiss wanted to share a quick song with you – a ragtime piece by Scott Joplin, also known as the Ragtime King whose birthday happens to be November 24 (or at least that’s what the tombstone says)!  Also in a fascinating turn of events, guess what the name of Joplin’s most influential teacher is?  Yep – Weiss! REALLY!! Yeah, we thought that was cool too! ?
