Synthesizer (New Age Pad) part from Mystery (for jazz band)

2 minutes
Modern classical music

"Mystery" is a light-hearted, "spooky-sounding" piece for a jazz ensemble. It was scored specially for the Mighty Special Music Makers, which you can read about at www.msmm.org/ This unique ensemble, conducted by Paula Moore, consists of mentally impaired and non-impaired musicians. The ensemble plays a wide repertoire of music including classical, jazz, Broadway, folk, and light. All band members learn to play professional percussion, tonal instruments, and a collection of folk instruments from around the world.

Although this piece is scored for many instruments, some are optional: Flute, clarinet, bassoon, trombone, banjo, violin, cello and saxophone are not all strictly necessary. (If a guitar is available, it may substitute for banjo.) The two synthesizer keyboards are quite necessary.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
