This paper describes a serious game intended to teach singing to children. The system shows the students a virtual world they can explore, and the evolution of the world is based on their performance. Automatic content generation tecniques are used to present the player with different exercises, and their singing is evaluated using state of the art techniques.

Troubadour: A Gamified e-Learning Platform for Ear Training
TLDR
The three-stage development methodology, which incorporated the needs and feedback from both teachers and students to build an engaging music-theory e-learning platform with gamification elements, corroborate the platform’s user experience as one of the key reasons for the students’ engagement.

Post-processing NPR effects for video games
TLDR
Different interactive, non photorealistic techniques which can be easily applied to video games are described, restricting ourselves to screen based effects, which permits any existing game to use this framework with practically no integration cost. Expand
Modifying a game interface to take advantage of advanced I/O devices
TLDR
The modifications required to use advanced, immersive I/O devices such as domes and Kinects in videogames, and a standalone library of components has been created to allow easy adaptation of other games, with few modifications required in the game architecture. Expand
Development of real-time visual feedback assistance in singing training: a review
TLDR
Both quantitative and qualitative studies confirm the efficiency of real-time visual feedback in improving singing abilities and suggest further quantitative investigations of the detailed effect of visual feedback on performance accuracy and on the learning process. Expand

An Automatic Grading Method for Singing Evaluation
TLDR
This paper presents a methodology that generates grades and comments for singing quality by first performing note segmentation and pitch estimation and a method based on experience of human perception is used to evaluate the accuracies of intonation and rhythm. Expand

ESTIMATION OF TEMPO, MICRO TIME AND TIME SIGNATURE FROM PERCUSSIVE MUSIC
Tempo, micro time and time signature are basic rhythmic features for a wide range of music. Their automated extraction from music is needed for a number of applications, e.g. automatic transcriptionExpand
Fundamental frequency alignment vs. note-based melodic similarity for singing voice assessment
TLDR
The results show that the proposed system is suitable for automatic singing voice rating and that DTW based measures are specially simple and effective for intonation and rhythm assessment. Expand
