her innovative music program designed for senior citizens was the

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.
