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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

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.

In this musical piece, I wanted to represent a warming melody to express a musical piece in an overture musical style (ABA). It starts out with a fast tempo of quarter note equals 150. It sounds harder than it actually is, because of the division of sixteenth notes in the first and second parts. In about the 3rd page, it forms into the basic overall melody of the song.

Next, after a few measures, it slows down with a blend of timpani and cymbals. After that, it starts the slow section with piano and percussion. After a few solos from the optional soprano saxophone part, piccolo, and trumpet part, there is a cadenza for the soprano sax., but is transposed in the woodwinds and trumpets.

Finally, it accelerates from quarter note equals 80 to the original tempo and repeats the fast part. After changing to four flats, and repeating, then it ends with a trumpet fanfare in the key of F Major.

The overture that I’m writing is dedicated to my loving girlfriend, Melanie, who I have been going out with for almost a year.

This is still an active project, as I have not updated the score yet.
