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.

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.

I recently put a piano only arrangement of Lead On, O King, Eternal on this site. This arrangement is the same piano part but adds the string bass and drums (I prefer a brush kit). One thing about using Sibelius or any other notation software is the lack of tasteful drum parts for all styles. At least for me it's hard to find a suitable part that won't get in the way of the music so I resorted to just doing it myself and of course I'm no drummer. Good drummers always seem to know what to do anyway so writing it more simply is probably a plus. I know this is not really jazz but at least it's contemporary sounding and I hope you enjoy it. If you bought the piano only arrangement you need only buy the bass and drum parts to give it that jazz trio sound.
