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.

An arrangement of my composition "One leg's both the same as the other" for the orginal trio (piano, bass, drums) plus two trumpets, alto sax, clarinet and flute. I found Roger Freundlich's comments in his review of "One leg…" helpful in making this arrangement. It is still basically an 8-bar blues in 5/4 time, but I have added a riff-based interlude (25 bars starting at H) between the main solos and restatement of the theme. I have kept the lengthy introduction (at A) before the main theme because it sets the scene rythmically and harmonically, gives us something simple to do at the first rehearsal, and makes an effective reprise at N (after the interlude). I intend to try this with the jazz group of Epsom Children's Orchestra but will probably have to make some simplifications, in particular to the latter parts of the interlude (letters L and M). NOTE ON TEMPO: I would recommend cranking it up a bit using the control at the top of the window. The MM of 144 is all I can realistically expect from my young players but faster would definitely be better.
