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.

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.

This is our new tune-book for 2014: 18 short pieces and studies arranged for our school orchestra and handbell team. We always start our rehearsals with a scale, so as well as many popular folk tunes, this book also includes D major, G major and E (natural) minor arranged for the whole orchestra to play in unison.

The parts are tailored for our own school orchestra but can easily be adapted to suit yours - here you will find open string violin & cello parts, limited range clarinet, trumpet and trombone parts and limited range 2nd recorder parts for beginners. The bassoon part is tricky (up to grade 3) and the piano parts are tailored to challenge our talented grade 2 pianist. 1st violin parts use first position, 2nd violin parts use the basic 1st position (no 2nd finger pulled back). Percussion parts use instruments that are in our school music room.

We have a separate handbell team which rehearses at a different time from our orchestra, so the handbell part will stand alone if you don’t have a school orchestra to play along with. Or you can add any or all of the instrumental parts to play along with your handbell team to make best use of the talent in your school, i.e. handbells and recorders or handbells and violin.

Please feel free to print and adapt these parts to suit your own school’s needs. If you’d like a copy of the original sib7 file, you can contact me (Katrina) through

Thanks for looking! :)
