Camera Tool Helps Musicians Improve Their Posture While Practicing
Arthur Carabott developed the Musician's Mirror to help musicians improve their skills while also preventing lasting injuries
If you’ve never had a music lesson, you may not know first-hand about the cliché of a music instructor nagging their students to keep up their posture. A musician’s posture matters a lot to performance and the prevention of long-lasting injuries. Wanting to assist those still learning these critical points, musician and developer Arthur Carabott created Musician’s Mirror, a program that observes the musician while they play to help them develop good posturing habits.
The program uses a camera mounted to a music stand to observe the musician while they play. Any time the player slumps or starts making an inappropriate movement, the program sounds a warning noise. The more the musician uses Musician’s Mirror, the more feedback they receive as the program provides a detailed report of their progress.
Carabott tested a prototype at the Royal College of Music in London and plans to try developing the program to operate on smartphones and tablets for musicians to use wherever they go.
