Although finger bones construction of human body is very complex and difficult to measure but it is necessary to measure the dexterous finger movement of a pianist for piano playing. This paper has measured the finger movements with six degrees of freedom of an expert pianist, using a magnetic motion capture system by which it is possible to measure any type of finger movements during their activities. From the current research novice players/beginners can get the information about intertap interval time of a particular finger, finger height in space, finger status and finger tip velocity during playing the piano. Moreover it has shown an easy digital recording process of the hand’s movements using a hand MoCap system. These themes are crucial to acquire knowledge of any kind of finger movements and its digitization. The results has presented in this paper are particularly helpful for novice players as well as applications where dexterous finger movements are essentials such as piano education and different games.
Key words: Dexterous finger movement, motion capture, piano education, finger status, finger tip velocity.
