Introduction and Project Summary

WoodwindMania is an instrument learning simulation that allows users to learn note fingerings of three instruments in an inexpensive and convenient way while remaining true to the physical instrument. 

The product consists of a flute controller that senses finger placement, breath control, and instrument orientation as well as an accompanying web application that gives feedback on the user’s playing. In addition to note tutoring, WoodwindMania will provide scale exercises for users to practice.
