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 is an open-formed Jazz composition which came to my mind during my lessons at the University of Mannheim. All of my students in SPK ("Schulpraktisches Klavierspiel" = "Piano Playing for School use") have to learn how to harmonize a major scale (TLH stands for "Tonleiterharmonisation" which means "scale-harmonisation"). Additionally, most of them have their first experience in improvising music during my lessons. I decided to combine those two fields in a single piece: A blues which uses several scale-excerpts (with the appropriate harmonisation) as well as a whole harmonised major scale at the end. The first performance with my trio (featuring Gernot K�gel on bass and Alex Heinz on drums) will take place on March 9th, 2008 at the small church in Osthofen.

The piece is also part of my debut CD album "From seconds to hours" (please order at Amazon or download at iTunes!). This is where the Mp3 version is taken from. Quality is much better on the original CD, of course.
