Ragtime at the Zoo: Animal Rags

Featuring piano rags on the theme of animals

 

By Ted Tjaden

(originally published June 2006 and updated periodically)

 

There are links in the table below to over 190 classic piano rags or ragtime-era compositions that are named after animals or have animals on their sheet music covers. Beneath the table is a list of 59 additional "print only" classic piano rags on the theme of animals, some of which are widely available in various ragtime folios (as indicated). I realize that some of the rags below are only marginally related to animals but I have decided to err on the side of inclusiveness. Almost all of the rags on this page are instrumentals; however, I made a few exceptions such as for Moving Day in Jungle Town  (see below) and Gila, Galah, Galoo! (see below) because the artwork on these covers was so fantastic.
