Everyone wants to be Where the Wild Things Are, and Maurice Sendak's children's book of that name has become a classic. The performing rights are owned by Universal Films who won't respond to my requests to add Maurice Sendak's words to this score, so I have omitted them and the original titles of the pieces, which were quotations. I shall also refrain from paraphrasing Mr Sendak's plot. This piece has been performed in schools in Tain and at Inverness Music Festival. The children loved it, joining in with the stomp with gusto. The piece is also available in the original version for piano solo, and for piano and cello, and for 2 bassoons (a good bit harder), so if you would like any of these or the parts, please get in touch. NMB.

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

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

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.
