Abstract

Beginners need a long time before being able to play correctly violin. Learning the bowing technique appears to be a difficult task and retains most of the attention of beginners. Besides this point, the finger placement is also an important part of the learning but often under estimated. One difficulty is that the fingerboard of the violin does not have frets. In this on-going work, we present a marker-less augmented reality system that advises the novice players about their fingering and bowing. We display in real-time the virtual frets by tracking the violin with a depth camera. We also capture and recognize the note currently played to direct the placement of the bow on the strings.
