This is one of my best pieces. The idea came to me at about 3 AM and I reached for my recorder….no batteries! I kept singing it and drove to the grocery store in the rain. Once inside I hurried down the aisles while Sheryl Crow blared "I wanna have fun". I kept singing to myself–-I paid for the batteries and rushed outside and put them in my recorder and pressed record. This is used at Beth Am for Friday nights. Wedding clients always pick it as a instrumental ceremony piece. This version on mp3 is my good friend Taryn Webber singing the lead.

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.
