Automatic Assessment of Student Music Performances

by Alexander Lerch, Georgia Institute of Technology

Abstract


While there is large interest in Music Information Retrieval tasks focusing on extracting score-like information such as pitches, chords, and rhythmic properties, less attention is being paid to performance information such as (micro-)tempo, intonation, and dynamics.
This presentation will look at Music Performance Analysis from the perspective of assessing student music performances. The possibilities and limitations of current data-driven approaches to the assessment of middle and high school students will be discussed based on real-world results on a large dataset of graded student recordings.
