page one of the Bass Guitar (or keyboard) part from Island Jam #8 - for Percussion Ensemble

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

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

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

Full details

This simple percussion ensemble piece can be prepared for performance in just a few rehearsals. There are several easier parts written for auxiliary percussion instruments that will allow students who are new to percussion to participate in the ensemble as well. (The piece also sounds fine without them, so use as needed.)

This piece has multiple instances of melodic parts entering on the second half of the 4th beat, and would be an excellent piece to use in working on basic syncopation.

(I included a marimba 2 part in bass clef for those who prefer it.)

As always… Please listen to the MP3 file I have included to get a better idea of what the piece sounds like. Thank you for your interest in my music, and feel free to email me if you are performing one of my works.
