SCOREMATIC: HOW CAN WE ASSIGN THE BEST MUSICAL SCORE TO A STUDENT?

T. Alvarez, A. Valle Angel

University of Valladolid (SPAIN)
Music should be an ever present subject in the education curricula of children, Scorematic intends to help the instructor with the task of choosing the right score and style that improves the student eagerness for learning Music.

Sometimes, it is difficult for instructors to remember and to understand the tastes of all the students, which is essential when assigning scores that are attractive to them.

Another problem is the huge amount of scores that a music teacher or schools can collect over the years. It might end up being impossible to keep control. We are interested in a management system that allows to store where the physical score is stored and its recognition by audio or video in the computer.

Scorematic is a software tool that has two main objectives:
a) Managing students from music schools. Keeping records on their advances, which level they are, what they are studying, ...
b) Assigning new musical scores automatically to students.

Due to the particular musical tastes, the wrong approach may lead students to lose interest. Taking into account past and present scores studied by the pupil, ScoreMatic assigns/proposes new themes or styles that can be of interest to the learner.
The application allows a total organization and management of student data, which will be grouped depending on the day, time and classroom.

Multimedia information of the scores can be saved in the student’s record to ease the process of recognition. ScoreMatic has been developed in .NET.

Audio and video files playing the work can be included in the database for each score. There are four keys that allow organizing the scores by theme and category. For instance, ‘Für Elise’ by Beethoven will have as keys: piano, classical music, Beethoven and romanticism. These keys also help when assigning values to what the student likes or dislikes teh most.

Every time the student needs a new music score, the system shows the most likely ones to be preferred. It also gives information on those scores that cannot be classified. The teacher can change the assignment. Every time a work is finished, the system calculates a grade between 0 and 100 that displays/shows the student’s degree of satisfaction. A basic and very useful tool is the backup of the database.
