Professor King’s Optimistic Rag

From $3.00

It’s another “Professor King” ragtime piece that is outrageously happy and fun, with just a hint of nervousness in the middle!

SKU: AJM18051 Category: Tag:


This ragtime piece starts off exceptionally happy, but the middle section contrasts with a nervousness and tense feeling, thanks to the diminished chords and contrary-motion chromatic scales. Performers who enjoyed Professor King’s Celebrated All-Purpose Exceptional Invigorating Effectacious Good-Time Spirited Composition for the Modern Piano-Forte will have a great time learning and performing this piece! (And the title is easier to remember!)

Key: C major

Mood: happy, positive, tense in the middle section.

Pedagogy: chromatic scales, staccato, syncopation, diminished chords
