Soprano Cornet part from Aunt Dinah Has Blowed de Horn from the opera Treemonisha

Scott Joplin transcribed by Carlton King
2 minutes
Ragtime music and Classical music

Original 1 step higher. Tempo note: Through most of "Treemonisha" Joplin gives the tempo through words and metronome markings. This is an exception. It says "Assai Moderato con espressione", with no indication how moderate is moderate. I have suggested 120–on the up side of "moderato"–which feels right to me, but this movement is typically done much faster. Joplin’s tempo indications for his rags generally include the word "march", suggesting +/-120. Or Joplin might have erred in his time signature, really meaning for it to be alla breve (2/2). Make your own decision. The repeat (and first ending) is not in the original.

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.
