This piece was written for piano students at the Halloween season, but they enjoyed playing it all year round. Pay attention to the 1-5, 5-1 changes for ease in playing. Teaching points: Minor five-finger pattern, contracting hand to change positions on piano, and changing positions, playing in a variety of ranges on the piano, staccato-legato, left hand dominance in some melodic sections.

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.
