The Scott Joplin Archive

The Archive began as a home for the Scott Joplin Online Centennial, a year-long celebration of Joplin's music beginning in April 2017. It will also serve as an ongoing resource for those interested in studying, performing, and listening to Joplin's music.

The Scott Joplin section is devoted to his life and times.

Piano Works is an archive of MIDI files, with one performance of each composition selected by a jury. They can be played on many different systems, including the Yamaha Disklavier MIDI piano.

The Disklavier Education Network is mirroring the Piano Works archive, and includes additional performances of selected compositions. Over the course of the year, we will be gathering video-sync recordings made of people introducing their performances and discussing issues of Joplin's history and performance practice combined with Disklavier performances.

Timewarp Technologies has partnered with the Archive and Online Centennial to publish Joplin's complete works in an interactive format that allows a pianist to work with interactive scores synchronized with performances from the Archive on an iPad.

You can get answers to Frequently Asked Questions, including information on how to submit recordings and papers.
