Automated Sheet Music Translation

This was a group project where our goal was to build a Optical Music Recognition (OMR) system from scratch using the skills we learned in Computer vision class.

Staff Lines Removed

Utilizing OpenCV, we built our system to recognize staff lines and notes in music sheets. After detecting and removing the staff lines from the original image. We were able to determine the measure and pitch of our music sheets by performing template matching to the symbols used in music.

Our system was also able to handle a moderate amount of noise in regards to scanned music sheets to allow proper detection. In addition, the system is able to output a computer generated music sheet after performing OMR on the scanned music sheets.
