Terry WaldoCome remind yourself—or learn for the first time—that ragtime
and stride piano are among some of the most uplifting music ever played: timeless, joyful, and plain old fun. Hailed by the New York Times as a "ragtime pianist nonpareil and eminent scholar of the form," Terry Waldo brings us his infectious program of virtuoso ragtime and stride played with precision, poise-and reckless abandon.

A protégé of jazz great Eubie Blake, Terry is known not only for his brilliant interpretations of ragtime and early jazz, but also for his droll, witty storytelling. He has performed worldwide in some of the best-known jazz venues including Lincoln Center, the Cookery, and the Grand Parade du Jazz in Venice. He recently performed the world premier of "The Eubie Blake Concerto " with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall.

Terry's diverse and prolific talents include producing and arranging over 40 albums and composing for television programs including The Tonight Show and Ken Burns' PBS documentary, Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson. Terry‘s This Is Ragtime (Jazz at Lincoln Center) the definitive work on the subject, along with the 26-part series of the same title he produced for National Public Radio, fueled the 1970's ragtime revival.

Terry will be teaching Introduction to Ragtime & Stride Piano on Sunday afternoon at 2:00-4:00 pm.
