AbstractThe education of the Turkish makam music practice is carried out by face-to-face sessions with the masters. Our aim in this work is to present a rhythm training software that helps users imitate recording of a master and receive visual feedback about their performances compared to the recording of the master. The system automatically detects onsets in the recordings and then performs comparison of the onset locations with a novel approach defined here. We present a demonstration of the software and preliminary test results on basic rhythmic patterns of Turkish makam music.
