Black and White Rag

Here's a 1908 American ragtime piece by Botsford that I'm now playing. A few misses playing it on my Kohler and Campbell piano but that was my fault for playing it at 2 AM in the morning. But ah, but no work for me today and so I have an excuse. I'll play the piece again when I'm a bit more refreshed. Meanwhile, enjoy my playing the piano as one of the very, very few deaf/hh ragtime pianist around. Expect more videos of me playing ragtime or novelty old timey pieces in the very near future.

Both of my kids (ages 7 and 5) are HOH (both wear HAs), and both are currently taking piano lessons and thoroughly enjoying them -- thanks for this great encouragement for them to keep practicing!!!

Thank you. I began my piano playing days at the age of 7 as well. It's a matter of sticking with it and you just gotta love playing to piano if you want to see success. Practice, patience, and the love for playing on a piano are the keys, ahem, to success.

Glad to hear that your kids enjoy playing the piano. Any recitals in the near future?
