America, Black History Month, and Chicago: <p>Black history month day 11: Ragtime composer Scott Joplin.</p> <p>Stock Joplin was born just three years after the end of the Civil War in 1868, to a former slave man and freeborn black woman. His father worked as a laborer for the railroad and his mother was a maid. When not working, his father liked to play the violin for plantation parties in North Carolina while his mother sang and played the banjo. Joplin was given a rudimentary musical education by his family and from the age of seven he was allowed to play the piano while his mother cleaned.</p> <p>Joplin was ambitious about learning piano, often practicing after school. He was tutored for a while by German Jew who had emigrated to America. This teacher taught him folk, classical, and opera music, encouraging him to recognize music as an art form. Joplin never forgot the man’s kindness and sent the ill and aging man a gift of money once he had become successful.</p> <p>Jump and did some work as a real way labor but decided to abandon this in pursuit of a musical career. He soon realized that there were not a lot of opportunities for black musicians, churches and brothels being the primary places he could play piano. But he saw some minor success at the Chicago world‘s fair and went on to published several significantly popular ragtime pieces.</p> <p>He composed an opera and move to New York to get it published, unfortunately art music was a field largely closed off the African-Americans. He did not get to see the opera have any success in his lifetime, although it was successfully staged in the 1970s.</p>
