George L. Spaulding  (1864-1921)
Last updated: 01.07.22
George L. Spaulding was an American composer, song writer and publisher born in Newburgh, New York.
He studied piano locally until he was sixteen and after moving to Brooklyn he studied harmony briefly with an organist. Thereafter he was self-taught. His specialty was writing simple piano pieces with well defined melodies and effective harmony. Spaulding's works have served an important purpose in juvenile education. His elementary technical books have also made an interesting place for themselves.
Most of his compositions were published by Theodore Presser Company, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
Of ragtime interest is his A Hen on the Nest (1904), published by Will Rossiter, Chicago, Illinois, USA, and is referred to in They All Played Ragtime.
