List of notable practitioners
The list of notable practitioners contains Mark Birnbaum. I'm questioning his notability. There was previously a wiki article about him but it was deleted at 02:15, 19 January 2010 (UTC) because "Subject is non-notable by wikipedia standards". I suggest removing him from this list as well. Please comment.
I also noticed that Scott Joplin was dropped from the list during revision 349724410 without any explanation. I agree with this drop because Scott Joplin was a ragtime pianist. Ragtime preceded stride and there is a separate article of ragtime which this article refers to. J-p-fm (talk) 13:08, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
- I already removed dead wikilink to deleted Mark Birnbaum page but still left his name in the article until further comments. J-p-fm (talk) 13:22, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
- Let's keep this list to notables with wikipedia bios. Also, let's keep this with a differentiation as to the formative era and the current era. It was improper to include people born in the 1960s or 1980s in the list with original practictioners who were already professional during the 1930s.Dogru144 (talk) 17:35, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

|The first sentence is poorly worded and is confusing. The phrase, "...where the pianist's left hand may play a four-beat pulse with a bass note or tenth interval on the first...".
Does the author mean that the bass note is a tenth interval below what the right hand is playing? Then that "or" should be an "of" within the italicized quote.
Or does the author really mean an exclusionary 'or' here? Which raises the question, what is the 'tenth interval' if it is not the/a bass note? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:45, 28 January 2009 (UTC)A Nony Mouse
