I SELL OUT – Disappointed that my classical and traditional piece are seldom listened to, I decided to capitulate and write a pop/rock number, which, appropriately, I call the soundtrack theme from "My Mid-Life Crisis." (If anyone makes a movie about me, this’ll be the opening theme.)

Sibelius is sold as notation software used for the purpose of creating sheet music for live performers, but it’s important to remember that it also produces superb sound files. I’m very satisfied with the sound of this piece using only Sibelius and the built-in MIDI sounds of my Mac.

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.
