After coming back from a ten-day school trip to France and Spain, I found out that I had to perform a trumpet solo at our school's annual Coffeehouse jazz concert, which was seven days away! So, for inspiration, I used the great, luscious city of Toledo, Spain.

Therefore, this solo trumpet piece is aplenty with Spanish motifs, and, I remember, upon performing, halfway through I ran out of air, dropped the F bomb, and quickly quipped, "That's Spanish for hello." You don't have to do that, mind you.

This piece is good for trumpet students, because it has much contrast both in tempo and dynamics, as well as range.

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.
