The Maple Leaf Rag was originally created by Scott Joplin. He was a very famous composer who created lots of ragtime piano compositions. It has now been recreated to be played and heard by all of you. I do not own the right to call the original piece mine, but I do own the right to say I created it here to sound like the original. The original was made by Scott Joplin, but also other creators like Sheet Music Boss and other websites online.
