Jolly up your repertoire with this lively 1920s Charleston style piece for trumpet and piano. It’s not too difficult to play (intermediate level) and at just over two minutes long makes for a snappy concert piece. It’s suitable, too, for educational use.

Originally composed for production music, it’s been used many times for TV and other media.

After the piano introduction the trumpet plays the melody at ‘A’ along with the piano. After the first time through the piano returns to the intro at ‘B’ but this time with a few flourishes from the trumpet. At ‘C’ the trumpet departs from the main melody and plays a written solo before returning to the melody for the middle eight. That’s followed by more solo playing until the last few bars.

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.
