An arrangement of Lassus Trombone for Brass Quintet.

Fillmore wrote over 250 pieces and arranged orchestrations for hundreds more. He published under a variety of pseudonyms, including Gus Beans, Harold Bennett, Ray Hall, Harry Hartley, Al Hayes, and Henrietta Moore. Only the name Will Huff caused any issues, as another Will Huff composed marches and resided in Fillmore’s state.

While best known for march music and screamers, he also wrote waltzes, foxtrots, hymns, novelty numbers, and overtures. Fillmore’s best known compositions include: "The President’s March" "The Footlifter" "Americans We" "Men of Ohio" "His Honor" "The Klaxon" "Lassus Trombone" "(We’re) Men of Florida" "Military Escort" "Mt. Healthy" "The Crosley March" "Noble Men" "Orange Bowl March" "Rolling Thunder March" "The Circus Bee" "King Karl King"

Fillmore gained fame as the "Father of the Trombone Smear’’, writing a series of 15 novelty tunes featuring trombone smears called "The Trombone Family". A number of these have a strong ragtime influence. All of Fillmore’s trombone rags are as follows:

Music to Fillmore’s popular "Trombone Family" series "Miss Trombone" (1908) "Teddy Trombone" (1911) "Lassus Trombone" (1915) "Pahson Trombone" (1916) "Sally Trombone" (1917) "Slim Trombone" (1918) "Mose Trombone" (1919) "Shoutin’ Liza Trombone" (1920) "Hot Trombone" (1921) "Bones Trombone" (1922) "Dusty Trombone" (1923) "Bull Trombone" (1924) "Lucky Trombone" (1926) "Boss Trombone" (1929) "Ham Trombone" (1929)

Occasionally, as in "The Footlifter" credit, Fillmore wrote with the name Harold Bennett.

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.
