The SIMONIS STOMP is a fun piece, originally written for a group of Descant Recorders to play, with piano accompaniment. It has been enjoyed by many players and this is an arrangement where the piano is replaced by a string orchestra. The string orchestra arrangement is ideal for schools since it has parts for 3 groups of violins, plus viola, 'cello and bass.

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.
