This is a badly written "funeral march" dedicated to my stupid day care program. However, I no longer part of the day care program, so I am now dedicating it to my school-not that I am specificly dedicating it to anyone that died while attending my school. I would say that this piece is a bad representation of the baroque and classical periods. I used a few styles of writing that J. S. Bach may have used. In addition, I copied the opening of Bach's "Wachet Auf" in a section of the piece. Also, the opening of this piece was inspired by Chopin's Funeral March (the piano sonata in Bb minor). Lastly, I took an exerpt from Beethoven's 5th Symphony to end the piece. Now you know that this is a bad piece. Please hesitate to 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, 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.
