Matevž Baloh (2012) Development of a piano learning tool. EngD thesis.
This thesis analyzes the appropriateness of the formula defined by the game 'Guitar Hero' in an application, which aims to help it's users learn how to play the piano. The appropriateness is determined through the development of an application. The thesis describes an attempt at the development of a game, the primary intention of which is to be fun, with the secondary purpose of teaching how to play the piano. After this, it describes an attempt at the development of an application, the primary intention of which is to teach how to play the piano and no longer to be fun. The purpose of such an application is to offer its users all the benefits, usually offered by a piano teacher. The third attempt, which the thesis describes, is the development of an application, the purpose of which is to aid a piano teacher in their teaching. The conclusions, which determine the appropriateness of the formula for an application, the purpose of which is similar to one which is described, all come from the foreseen and unforeseen problems, which were encountered during development. The thesis focuses on the problems during development with the goal of offering potential developers an insight into which problems they can expect during development, allowing them to better foresee the problems they will encounter and determine which compromises they will have to take.
