Tuba part from A Birthday Fanfare and Flourish

1 minute
Classical music

Written for a friend whose birthday party I was unable to attend, I wrote this piece for my and her enjoyment - I find it quite pleasant (although unchallenging to the listener - please don't slate this piece for not being "modern", "progressive" or "pushing the boundaries"). I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed writing it. The piece is naturally written to be played as it is scored, but I recognise that in many settings it can be impractical to get the requisite musicians, so I have provided parts for Eb Bass, Eb Horn and Bb Trombone just in case. If you print this score or the parts, I would appreciate an email to let me know what you're planning to do with it, especially if you plan on performing it somewhere :-)

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.
