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

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

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

The loss of a student or former student is a difficult experience for any teacher. Those of us who teach tend to develop close bonds with our charges, and losing one of them can be almost like losing a child of our own. Further, we strive to pass on the torch for the next generation to carry, and when one of them is forced to quit the race early, we feel the loss acutely.

Such were my sentiments upon the death of one of my former students at the tragically young age of thirteen years, following an extended illness. I was deeply touched and most honored that her family asked me to select a piece and perform it at her memorial service. "Jennifer’s Song" was at once my way of working through the pain of my loss, providing something that portrayed my view of her as the unique individual that she was, and giving comfort to her friends and loved ones.

Like love, sadness and empathy can be powerful motivators. I wrote "Jennifer’s Song" within about a two-hour interim, during a single evening.
