ABSTRACT & BIO:
 +
Mona is an enthusiastic musician, whose focus and passion has been to
 +
share the joy of music with others. In 2018, a successful outcome of
 +
her innovative music program designed for senior citizens was the
 +
turning point for her to decide to change the course of learning piano
 +
in a less complex route. Her engineering background helped her to
 +
start working on the idea that bridges the gap between music and
 +
technology.
  
 +
The approach to fingering in music has always been and still is one of
 +
the major elements of success for keyboard players. Correct fingering
 +
assists the performer in delivering a better technical and musical
 +
performance. This research presents the best technique to generate
 +
fingering for any sequence of music notes. Dynamic programming and
 +
mathematics are major parts of this paper, they work alongside rules
 +
set by pianists to calculate the most practical fingerings for any

musical passage.

@5:30pm in the Classroom on Wednesdays!

The CCRMA Colloquium is a weekly gathering of CCRMA students, faculty, staff, and guests. It is an opportunity for members of the CCRMA community and invited speakers to share the work that they are doing in the fields of Computer Music, Audio Signal Processing and Music Information Retrieval, Psychoacoustics, and related fields. The colloquium typically happens every Wednesday during the academic year from 5:30 - 7:00pm and meets in the CCRMA Classroom, Knoll 217, unless otherwise noted.

The colloquium team for 2020-2021 is:
Barbara Nerness - bnerness@ccrma.stanford.edu
Kunwoo Kim - kunwoo@ccrma.stanford.edu
Mike Mulshine - mrmulshine@ccrma.stanford.edu
Camille Noufi - cnoufi@ccrma.stanford.edu

  • Note: the colloquium will not be held every Wednesday this year (20-21), please keep an eye on the notification e-mails for the dates.
