Dictionary of musical themes. Tune lookup with a virtual piano
To identify a tune, play the first ten notes on this virtual piano, then click
Search for this theme to find your melody. Don't worry about the rhythm,
just play the notes, in any key. Please omit grace-notes, appoggiaturas, acciaccaturas and other ornaments, as these are not reflected in the database. There may be a slight delay between clicking a
piano key, and hearing the note. The note names will be listed below the piano.
You may play fewer or more than ten notes, but any notes after the tenth will be
ignored when performing the database search. A list of matching tunes (if any)
will pop up below the piano. This list shows the musical notation for each theme, and you can click on the green play button on any
tune row to hear it. The tune title is a hyperlink to the tune details page for this tune, where you can read more details,
see the notation for all the other themes (if any more), and view or print the score. Help.
