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.

This work of five 2-minute pieces was composed over a period of a year, during which I experimented with a variety of musical terms and theory. Due to a lack of skills but the love for jazz, I decided on piano and saxophone. In the process I was hoping to present my compositional voice in a toned-down jazz imitation style. Feel free to re-arrange the pieces to suit your individual needs, styles or preferences.

The titles are not aimed at any specific celebrity, so please do not get carried away. It�s purely incidental if any one of the titles matches your circumstances!

In each piece I combined traditional and less traditional harmonies for a different color, yet you may change the harmony any way you like, and improvise!

Rhythmic patterns are based on examples taken from The New Harvard Dictionary of Music (Randel) and some from the internet. If you have any suggestions on texts, examples or comments on specific dance-style rhythms, I would like to hear about it. Thank you!
