The Complete ‘Maple Leaf Rag’ by Scott Joplin–Sheet Music with Letters


The complete and original Maple Leaf Rag by Scott Joplin, piano sheet music with letters.

Compiled and annotated by Kent D. Smith of Piano With Kent, 2020.


This “lettered-notes” sheet music version of Maple Leaf Rag is recommended for people who have limited music-reading skills, but who are not currently taking private lessons.*

Specifically, each note is labeled with its musical letter-name, such as E, F#, G, Db.

*This approach works well for adults who took piano lessons as a child, for example, and who now want to play their favorite tunes and pieces, but who may have forgotten certain details about reading music. This is actually a very common dilemma!
