Narrator part from The Tortoise and the Hare for Advanced Brass Quintet Soloists and Middle School Band

5 minutes
Modern classical music

This is a composition for advanced soloists with an easy accompaniment and narrator. It tells this well-known fable through words and music. The narration occurs between the short movements. It is an excellent way for younger band musicians to hear and work with advanced soloists. This is the version where a Brass Quintet serves as the soloists. Other versions sold separately have a Clarinet Quartet, Saxophone Quartet, or Woodwind Quintet as the soloists. The Score prints on legal size paper and the parts on letter.

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.
