The Funpiece was composed for performance by a senior school choir. The piece is based upon the 12bar blues structure and riff motifs. It begins with three solo voices on line 1 - "doodleoodleoos" Lines 2 to 5 "Bop Bebop" etc., should be added one after the other until all six lines are running. The piece will thereby increase in density of textures. The harmonic interplay and rhythmic counterpoint will also increase.

Choir directors should experiment with the various in which lines are added. A more advanced format would be to get the singers to move from line one to line two and so on. When the singers get the feel of the harmonic implications of the riffs The might even think up a riff of their own!

The pice could also be used as a Funpiece for School bands!

The singers love this piece.

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.
