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.

I am currently learning to play the flute and have just about mastered the first octave. In order to spur me on to the second octave, I have written these four pieces which are about Grade One level. They were composed on the flute in a very short space of time with the harpsichord part added as an afterthought. Although scored for flute and harpsichord, the keyboard part can be played on piano, or indeed the flute part will work as a solo without accompaniment. I am always interested in how my pieces (particularly educational pieces) are being used. I have therefore decided to offer all my beginner flute music free, but would ask that you drop me an email to say how you are using it and feel free to include any comments or requests. My email is:

The four pieces are as follows:

1: Inter spem et metum: This piece is in the Aeolian mode on G and portrays the title by switching between the minor mode and major. The piece should be played as lyrically as possible.

2: Winter Song: Winter Song is in the Dorian mode on D and has a dance-like feel. This piece should be played as fast as the flautist can manage with no rit at the end.

3: Minuet: The minuet is in the Aeolian mode on E. The piece should be played (where possible) with a slight accent on the second beat of every bar.

4: Puck's Dance: Puck�s Dance is based around the Lydian mode on G, but soon changes to Lydian on A. The piece helps support the transition between the two octaves on the flute and also includes the D# necessary for Grade One music and scales. The piece should be played with vigour and should not be allowed to drag.
