  1. Justified Solution Group Jason Rosko, Sagar Patel, Griffin Fitzsimons

  2. Agenda • Problem Statement • Statement of Purpose • Research • Survey • Design Criteria • Prototype • Testing • Conclusion

  3. Problem Statement • Musicians have been reading sheet music for over 750 years. While a musician is playing to the end of a page of sheet music, the next page must be immediately available. Having to stop playing, in order to turn a page, is disruptive to the flow of songs globally. On online music forums such as music.stackexchange.com, musicians voice opinions such as “When playing the piano, I sometimes struggle to turn the pages of my music without noticeable sacrificing the sound of the piece or making the book/sheet fall”.

  4. Statement of Purpose • Design a device to smoothly turn the pages of a stack or book of sheet music.

  5. Justification • How big of a problem is this? • Disrupts the flow of the music • Difficult to turn pages • Causes frustration (continually flipping sheet music) • Sheet music can fall

  6. Research • Validate problem • Does it exist? • Multiple evidence • Forum • Interview • Patents • Many patents to solve this problem • Not effective • Many not created or pursued

  7. Research • Previous solution • PageFlipLite • IPAD Bluetooth controlled • Few use • Not advertised • Airturn • Too expensive • Automatically flip sheet music via pedal

  8. Previous Solutions • Researched previous solutions • Designs • How solutions work • Problems • Pricing

  9. Contact Professionals • Sent e-mails to skilled professionals • Music store owners • Orchestra directors • Asked questions about problem • Paper sheet music > Electronic sheet music • Justify problem

  10. Market Research • Target Audience • Musicians, preferably inexperienced (less than 5 years) • High school students • People who have a problem with flipping sheet music

  11. Performance Benchmark • Design is able to flip a page within the length of time of one line of the music currently being played • Design has an efficiency near 100% • Design can flip pages forward and backward • Design is silent and undisruptive during use

  12. Design Criteria • Design specifications • Determine how prototype will work • Automatic • Hand-powered • Decision matrix between possible solutions

  13. Gantt Chart

  14. Timeline

  15. Survey • Preliminary questions • Develop survey • Administer survey • Collect data • Analyze data and draw conclusions

  16. Survey results • Low price • More than 50% of musicians find flipping sheet music a problem (sample size 120) • Not advertised • Unaware of existing solutions

  17. Survey Data

  18. Survey Data

  19. Survey Data

  20. Survey Data

  21. Design Matrix

  22. Design • Scroll system • effective • automatic • expensive • Sheet music magnetic modification • cheap • Not as effective • Easy to operate

  23. CAD Drawings • Scroll System • Magnetic Modification

  24. Final Prototype • Magnetic Sheet music • The user has to stop the flow of the music momentarily to flip to the next sheet • Smooth, quick transition • Magnets usually don’t lose attraction over time

  25. Testing

  26. Testing

  27. Testing

  28. Testing

  29. Overall Results • Positive • The results went as planned • Consistent • However, the prototype is not automatic

  30. Refinements • Change size of magnetic tabs • Initially, the magnets were going to go across the entire page • Problem with weight distribution • Currently, magnetic tabs on both sides

  31. Conclusion • Flipping sheet music is a big problem • Many solutions that fix this problem, but most are expensive ($50+) • Unaware of products • While the magnetic tab sheet music do not automatically flip the sheets, the process does become smoother
