Interactive Scores

Download the Scorch plugin and you will instantly be able to see and play back traditional music scores provided by ITMA. The Archive is adding scores from historical collections to this area on an ongoing basis.

There are lots of user-friendly ways to view and play back these scores. You can start, pause and stop playback anywhere you want in a score, skip forwards or backwards quickly in it, change its playback tempo or change its key. An ideal learning environment!

Interactive controls are simple to use. They appear above the music in every score, and the icons mimic the familiar controls that you know from your CD player or digital music player.
