Drum Set from Orchestra Hero

3 minutes
Rock and Pop Music and Classroom materials

At a staff meeting of string teachers in the Rockwood School District, I simply asked the Elementary teachers if they’d like me to write something for them to teach their students; something that they couldn’t find elsewhere, for example, or something that they weren’t satisfied with in another piece. Quickly, two teachers asked for a rock number, and also asked for advanced parts for some of their stand-out players. Thus, ORCHESTRA HERO was born. Those advanced parts are labeled as Solo in the score and parts- have as many as you’d like play those lines. They are identical in the violin, viola and cello parts. Enjoy!

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.
