  • This study introduces vMaestro, a smartphone interface for music conducting. Powered by the device’s gyroscope, vMaestro analyzes conducting motions, allowing the user to not only control the tempo but also to simulate cueing for different instruments. The results of user tests show that, despite certain ergonomic problems, conducting practice with vMaestro is more satisfactory than traditional methods and has a strong potential as a conducting practice tool.
