These excercises are helpful for developing overall blend and intonation as well as tonguing skills. The initial tuning excercise uses tritones. Because of teh dissonant nature of this interval, student can more easily focus there ears on pitch center. Try it , it works. The following excercises, based on typical circle progressions in major and minor, when done every day aid in harmonic ear training and chordal intonation. Also note that this excecise has been arranged so that brass and woodwind can warm up separately and still have complete chords to listen too if so desired by the director. The rapid tongue excercise on repeated notes, are also essential for developing articulation and motor control. Enjoy and let me know how these excercises work for you. Kendalljason@hotmail.com

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.
