It took me a while to think up a title for this one. Then, over Christmas break I watched Ron Howards "The Grinch" and thought that the happy little opening tune sounded like something you'd here as the camera is panning over the streets of Whoville. I wanted to write a waltz with a displaced feeling of the downbeat, so I added the 'B' section. It sounds like it doesn't belong at first, but I think it fits well in the scope of the piece…sort of like the Grinch feeling displaced from the rest of society, only to find out he fits after all.

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.
