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.

Innovative pianist/composer Anne Britt creates a memorable trip through canyons, island paradises, ancient rocky structures, magnificent waterfalls, and Amazon jungles in her new original piano solo book, "Departure." With twelve original pieces, "Departure" contains a musical adventure for every taste. Take a trip to a Cuban island paradise in the opening solo "Cayo Coco Island" with its exotic melody and rhythms. Or hop on for a wild ride on a southern Oregon mountain trail in "Eight Dollar Boogie" with its lively boogie woogie beat. Looking for an inspiring hike? "Temple of Aeolus" captures the majestic grandeur of reaching a summit with breathtaking views in all directions. Stop by "Little Niagara" with its bright, bounding melodies that evoke images of cascading water. "Erratic Rock" will shake your world with a feel that is just that - erratic! This piece incorporates fun and challenging rhythms and time signature changes that create unpredictable, yet exciting, patterns and movement. More of a homebody? The book concludes with a meditative piece titled "Journey of Remembrance," reminding us that not all trips worth taking have to be outside of our front door - sometimes the best journeys are those of remembrance. An adventurous delight for the intermediate to late intermediate pianist, "Departure" is a solo book that will keep you coming back for more.
