Abstract

From a psychological viewpoint, skills of musicians are many and diverse. Here, we address the ability to recognize pitch intervals and structures of western tonal music. While many computer tools exist to test and develop those skills, they tend to focus on relatively low levels of expertise. Our goal was to develop and test at a more advanced level that includes the recognition of any tone set selected from the 12 tones of the chromatic scale. From the technological viewpoint, unlike other existing systems, we are interested in a flexible and easy to use training and test tool applicable for diverse learning settings. This has motivated us to design and develop a tool which comprises a personalized training, testing and feedback provision of musical auditory skills. In this paper we outline our research objectives and intended application scenarios, state based on that most important requirements, outline our first implementation, give related work and finally discuss our findings.
