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.

Full details

Most of us instrumental teachers have needed to get our students through the Associated Board Grade 5 Theory Exam, so that they can then move on from Grade 5 Practical up to Grade 8.

There are excellent books to help pass Grade 5 Theory. The ABRSM itself has its own ‘pink’ handbook, which is an invaluable reference, and there are the Music Theory in Practice books, which ‘explain’ each topic, with one or two worked examples, and then provide opportunities for the student to practise further. Finally, of course, there are years of past papers available.

In a way my worksheets – which I’ve entitled: Pass Grade 5 Theory! are different from all of the above: I have taken some typical questions as might be encountered in the Grade 5 exam, and gone through each one in a sort of dialogue fashion, asking the same questions of the candidate as I have done for many years’ teaching during an actual lesson.

I’m certainly not saying my methods are the best, or the only ones that work, but I have honed them over many years, and they do seem to work, with students’ successes confirming this virtually each exam session.

Each similarly, and modestly-priced worksheet deals with a particular topic, although General Questions sometimes include two or three.

I have arranged the worksheets as follows:

Cadences (4) General Questions (9) Composing Melodies (4) SATB (2) Scales (4) Transposition (4) Word-setting (4)

While there will be some duplication between worksheets in various topics, I have tried to mix things up so that anyone buying all the sheets, or all those under one topic, would find sufficient new ideas to warrant the outlay. Conversely, producing separate sheets gives the student and teacher the flexibility the get hold of how much or how little help they ultimately need, incrementally, as and when they need it.
