5. March of the wooden soldiers

P.-I. Tchaikovsky
1 minute
Classical music

In April, 1878, Tchaikovski wrote: “I am working very hard. Tomorrow I shall begin a collection of miniature pieces for children. I thought, long ago, that it would not be a bad thing to do all in my power to enrich the childrens’ musical litterature. I want to write a whole series of perfectly easy pieces and to find titles for them which would interest children, as Schumann has done.” These 24 piano works are actually a collection of miniature pieces reminiscent of childhood, similar to Schumann’s “Album for the young”. Each selection is delightful and entertaining for students and audiences of all ages. Here is the fifth one: “March of the wooden soldiers”. Separated parts are available for free. Duration: about 1mn Original score for solo piano

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.
