O My Field is a Russian Folksong arranged for easy piano. This song is known in Russia as “Polyushko-polye”, or “По́люшко-по́ле”. The music was written in 1934 by Lev Knipper, and was originally published in his symphonic poem “A Poem about a Komsomol Soldier” (Поэма о бойце-комсомольце). This beautiful and interesting melody is a study in how to properly use the melodic minor scale. It features an angular meandering theme that is supported by simple flowing harmonic progression. This easy piano of argument of “O My field” focuses on finding and playing chord shapes with both the Left and Right hands. The colored notation makes the music easy to read, and the additional symbols used in the score for braces, clefs, and time signatures clarify the intention of the musical notation as well as offering the opportunity for further study and discussion in the piano lesson. Paint with Piano is a colored music notation system that simplifies the grand staff to help new students read and hear music. The three primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) represent the three primary musical functions rest, tension, and support (tonic, dominant, subdominant). Black notes represent non-harmonic tones and secondary colors are sometimes used when two functions can be combined in the same chord (ie. The submediant or mediant). Green is reserved for all applied chord functions, including N6, Aug6, modal mixture, and all secondary dominants.

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.
