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.

Program notes written by James Davis: "A New Beginning was commissioned by the Mt. Morris Bands. This very challenging work honors the lives of Ken Galbreath and Dennis Anderson, long time music teachers, mentors, and friends in the Mt. Morris School District.
The piece begins triumphantly with brass fanfares and a majestic precussion accompaniment. Despite several tempo changes, this new work for Concert Band never stops churning. Hard at work throughout, moving lines keep the pulse steady. Budding composer, Andrew Neer, captures the life of the music director in A New Beginning. Listeners can sense the urgency, work ethic, determination, and long term vision both Galbreath and Anderson shared amidst the turmoil and tribulations public school teaching, music, and life outside school walls challenged these role models with.
On several occasions Neer's Beginning reveals the pain and hardship all music directors try to mask while leading the youth to an understanding of art and imagination, of wonder and excitement.
This piece is a beautiful tribute to these two Mt. Morris legends. The title A New Beginning is as much about Galbreath and Anderson as it is about 'us.' Now 'we' carry their torch and it is 'our' job to share the joy of music with those around us…now without out beloved teachers walking beside us, but rather, watching over us."
