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:
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.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
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.

The dance music of Ireland has on paper much in common with that of the rest of the British Isles. Many of the tunes are the same as those from Scotland, England and Wales, though often they have acquired different names on their journey over the Irish Sea.
However, Irish dance music SOUNDS different. Usually smoother, but punctuated with sharply articulated ornaments and subtle improvisation, the music has an infectious swing and drive. I firmly believe that the basic rhythm and intonation of most native music is firmly founded on the living language of the people that play it. Listen to a group of Irish musicians chatting in between sets of tunes at a session, then listen to the music. The two things are not separate activities; one is a continuation of the other.
These tunes are personal favourites of mine and the musicians I play with regularly. Remember the written music is only your departure point, and that the real learning comes from listening to masters of the music like Tommy Peoples, Kevin Burke, Paddy Keenan, Mary Bergin, Sharon Shannon, Matt Malloy and a whole host of other wonderful musicians who play with that Irish accent.
Enjoy the music,
