Ragtime piano never goes out of style! Whitehead Street is one block south of Duval Street in Key West, and is home to the Southernmost Point monument, and the start of U.S. Highway 1, the main road throughout the Florida Keys (or the end, depending on which way you’re traveling). Whitehead Street Rag gives intermediate students practice with lots of pedagogical things while having a great time at the piano!
