Play the mp3 and listen through high quality head-phones! Score playback is poor! A piece for keyboard accompanied by a narrative gently spoken by a teacher, that might appeal to young school children, shortly before they have a nap. Imagine someone slowly swinging in a hammock on a warm summer´┐Żs day, letting their mind wander as they doze, and occasionally seeing a fleeting glimpse of wild-life. Electronic Piano 1 appears to provide the soft ambience needed when the piece is played through my hardware system. If played on an acoustic piano, a very delicate touch, sustained where necessary, is recommended to achieve the desired, quiet, dreamy effect. The words appear at appropriate places in the score, and a complete set is added at the end.

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.
