Joplin met Joseph F. Lamb in late 1907 or early 1908 and urged Stark to publish his music. Over the next decade Stark was to publish a dozen rags by Lamb, these comprising the basis for Lamb’s reputation. Stark also published Fig Leaf Rag (1908), the last new Joplin piece he was to issue. Joplin’s next eight piano works, in 1908/9, were published by Seminary Music, associated with Ted Snyder Music. One of these eight was Paragon Rag, which he dedicated to the CVBA—Colored Vaudeville Benevolent Association—an important professional and fraternal organization. Another was Euphonic Sounds, which he and others considered one of his most innovative rags. Joplin reportedly had resumed music studies, probably to enhance his opera; this may have been with opera coach Bruto Giannini, with whom he would study a few years later.
