Difficulty

Percussion ensemble

This is a neat tune that swings in 5. While it is not demanding technically, the counting can be tricky because of the timing. Originally composed as a tune for a jazz combo (piano, drums, bass,) I orchestrated it for a high school percussion ensemble I taught several year ago.

When I was composing this piece, I was imagining what the "theme music" might be as a person new to the city goes walking around New York at Midnight. The "'Round Midnight" is a nod to Thelonious Monk.

The price is for the score, a set of parts, and performance rights.

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.
