The title 24 or 6 to 5 sounds like the title 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago, but it is, I guess, a parody of the same. The numbers in 24 or 6 to 5 have some significance. In the military marching style, there are 24 steps from hash mark to sideline when marching across the field. When marching down field towards the end zones, it is 6 steps for every 5 yards. 6X5=30, which is the size of the step….30 inches. I figured all this without a calculator! This march, like most of my others is in the style of the American quick step march. It does have a bit of a circus march feel to it.

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.
