Scott Joplin was an African-American composer and pianist, born in Texas, USA in 1867. His family was musical, and in his teenage years and his twenties he worked as a travelling musician.  Later he settled in Missouri, where he started writing his ragtime piano pieces, and some songs.

His most successful ragtime piece was "Maple Leaf Rag", which earned him a small but steady royalty income for the rest of his life. It was the first piece of sheet music ever to reach sales in excess of one million!
