What's the most awesome website you've seen showin' some guy's (or maybe your?) repertoire?
Here's what I've come up with so far - not complete, but getting there:http://shazware.com/music
It's pretty ugly, but content-rich, and functional at least.
Yes, this is from my weird little midi sequencer.
I'm making it keep track of practice statistics like a list of days that you practiced. (Not all of us unprofessional players can practice RELIGIOUSLY EVERY day.)
And where you got the song, eventually coming up with a list of sources. (Perhaps to remind yourself of what you need to BUY since you stole it for free off the web.)
As you play a piece, it'll note the day in the midi file.
Even if the midi file is just a metronome drum track or something.
And generate a report in the form of a webpage that you can upload to a personal website or something.
I'm still nailing down all the specs.
Think of it kind of like ShiroKuro's "practice menu", but in a dedicated application that's hooked to a midi sequencer that'll show you notes in piano roll format and let you notate fingering and jot notes on the "virtual score".
It'll also sort your "to learn" and "repertoire" pieces by the last day you practiced it and (for rep pieces) a "revisit only every X days" parameter.
Anyways, I'm lookin for good ideas of how to make a webpage that's really FUNCTIONAL.
Pretty is good, too.
But this needs to be something that just might convince a pianist who wouldn't touch a midi sequencer with a ten foot pole to maybe reconsider...:D
Ok, maybe that's a stretch...:D
So any examples you've got...
of sites with a "list of songs player" embedded in em...
Or detailed practice statistics...
Or, come to think of it, what kinda things do YOU note
down on the score besides the usual fingering and dynamics?
I'm also thinkin' of having one page on http://pianocheater.com
that links to personal websites with this "rep" info.
This way, the app can scrape the sites for good midi files and let people autodownload em.
I'm gonna start with 2 personal pages of my own creation.
One for PianoNewbs (very easy 1st piano pieces)
and another for PianoNerds (more difficult, but not horribly).
Anywayyyyyz, all ideas welcome!
Feel free to ramble (like i always do:)
