Classical music
Brass quartet

This is a brass quartet arrangement of the very famous Beethoven theme "Ode to Joy" from his ninth symphony. This arrangement stands out because it gives tribute to the hymn harmonies as well as Beethoven's harmonies from his symphony. This terrific and moderately difficult three minute arrangement is ideal for weddings, worship services, or really any other event. If anyone would like these parts arranged for a different instrumentation, please contact me at james@ilearnmusic.com - Enjoy this piece and thank you for your support! Blessings.

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.
