Oriental Moods is a piece of music composed between 13th-15th July 2008 - the last remaining week of my job as Head of Music at St Ambrose College, Altrincham Cheshire. The piece was inspired by an 11 year old Chinese boy called Daniel Xu whose unbelievable ability to play the piano amazed me over the one year I taught him and got to know him in class music lessons.
The piece is dedicated to Daniel Xu and contains quite intentional Oriental melodies as a symbol of him. The piece was presented as a farewell present to all the piano players in the school as a memory of the musical and cultural opportunities I introduced them to during my time there.

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.
