As a teacher, I have found that students thrive on the familiar. Here is a way to capitalize on that enthusiasm by using well-known tunes to gradually introduce typical guitar techniques and textures in a progressive way. Play as many or as few of the variations, in any order, as you like. "Songs of Childhood", Book 1(see link below) collects together "Frere Jacques", "Ode to Joy", "Old MacDonald", "This Old Man" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" in two volumes. Vol. 1 - Themes and Variations 1 - 4, Vol. 2 - Variations 5 - 9. Please share your feedback with me by email: kevinlove@sympatico.ca Enjoy!

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.
